Good for the soul

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? Matt. 16:26

Life is full of needs and wants. Out of necessity, if not out of desire or interest, we pursue survival, security,  knowledge, relationships, possessions, recognition, etc., etc. Some of these pursuits are good for our souls while others  deflect the light and love of Christ. Before we go after something it’s a good idea to ask whether it’s good for the soul.

Lord, help me examine what I want and pursue only what leads me closer to You.
