People spend their entire lives pursuing happiness and fulfillment by seeking the pleasures of this world. But in the end, in this life, it is a speck of dust in the light of eternity. In Mark 8:36-37 Jesus asks the following questions, 36 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? 37 Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? The answer to Jesus’ questions is simply: NOTHING. The possessions we gain on this earth mean nothing and there is nothing on this earth that is worth exchanging our eternal souls. We must remind ourselves, in everything we do, that what we pursue and what we strive for matters in the light of eternity.
