Biblical Inspiration

Reflection:

From Luke 9:25-26 - What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his own soul?

Yes, indeed, what will it profit us to own mansions and business enterprises, the goods of the earth and all comforts and conveniences of the body, if we do not live up to our faith which tells us that there is still life hereafter?

Let us think of the life in the next, not of material things that will only bring us worry. What counts is the salvation of our soul not the preservation of material things which we cannot bring with us when we die to the life hereafter. Sometimes we are favored with earthly goods but our hearts should be detached from them; let's use them to promote the good of our soul, and let's share them with our needy neighbors. What will they profit us if they keep us away from love of God?

  1. Very well said. Amen to that. The greater things in life is to live according to the will of God. All other else is subservient to this purpose. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
