Short Devotion : Matthew 10:39

September 1, 2019

Read more of my short devotions on this blog or on Pinterest.

“Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39

The two life choices: selfishness or sacrifice. A selfish life results in loss. The things we gain lose meaning as we age. We never gain enough to truly satisfy us. A sacrificial life results in gain, but it is costly. We can only live a sacrificial life if there’s an incentive, that we will indeed, “find life” – find purpose and meaning. It’s not an entirely altruistic choice. We’ll live a sacrificial life when we are confident of God’s promise.
