what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world

Philip Yancey's and Dr. Paul Brand's book 'The gift of pain' has much to teach us on sensitivity and how it is a blessing to us, where it stands true on our physical body, our spiritual being should also be sensitive as was our Lord God when this is what was said about our Lord...



" But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. " Matthew 9:36 (NKJV)



Paul, when he saw his own people going down the road and rejecting Christ this was his sincere concern.

" that I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart." Romans 9:2 (NKJV)



How do we react to our circumstance or the people around us? do we see them all well? or are we able to see the pain and the sorrow that comes in due to the Lord's absence.



The world as we see them today is after much gain for money, position and all that would keep them ahead and after a tiring pursuit for it when they really find it they realise the vanity of their pursuit which is as the Lord taught us.....

" For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? " Matthew 16:26 (NKJV)



thus the Lord has taught us to prioritise our pursuits and streamline them in His way....



" But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)



The Lord's message is loud and clear to us and has to be passed on to others in the same manner too and this shall only happen when this is preceded by a deep sense of burden for the lost, let's pray to the Lord that He may fill us with a burden for the lost, for then we will know Him better and serve Him the best.





God Bless,

Abraham
