Mark 8:35 is always a good reminder of what my priorities should be, For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. It does me no good to be concerned with self-preservation in this life, when the only life that matters is my life in eternity. As I start a new job today, this is a good nudge to remember my true purpose in this life. While I do not want to beat people with the gospel of Christ, I do need to be a reflection of Him in my life. I must keep Him in the front of my mind in all I do today and everyday.
