Cost-benefit analysis

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

Every choice comes with costs and benefits. We work so hard to build and preserve relationships, careers, health, and wealth. Sometimes the question to ask not whether a decision will be worth the effort in twenty years but whether the decision brings positive spiritual impact now and whether it is of any eternal consequence.

Lord, help me stop asking what it will cost me and start asking how it will help You.
