For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26)
Today's Morsel:When I was in elementary school, because we couldn't afford school lunches, my Mom would make my lunch. Sometimes it would be just a molasses biscuit, or a couple of ham or sausage biscuits for my lunch. The grease would sometimes seep through the bag, but boy the love that had gone into making those biscuits made them taste even better during lunch. Lots of times, my friends who had money to purchase their lunch would want to trade their money for my lunch. Some times I would, but not too often. I always wanted the love that I knew was associated with my lunch. It was like having life. Jesus said, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" If you were standing before Jesus right now, and your soul was at stake because of sin, what would you have to exchange to get it back? Paul lets us know "But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content... For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.(1 Timothy 6:6-8;10). Jesus has prepared a great meal for you when you get home; so don't trade your soul for the emptiness of this world.
Sing: Jesus has a table spread, where the saints of God are fed, He invites His chosen people, "Come and dine." With His manna He doth feed us, and supply our every need, tis so sweet to sup with Jesus all the time.
"Come and dine!" the Master calleth, "Come and dine!", you may feast at Jesus' table all the time; He who feed the multitude, turned the water into wine, to the hungry calleth now, come and dine.
