THE VALUE OF A SOUL

THE VALUE OF A SOUL

MATTHEW 16:26
Value is the price, worth or the equivalent rate of a commodity.
Money or precious stones are mostly used as an exchange to determine the value of goods and services.
Likewise any amount of money or gifts one received to render any forms of commercial or social service to people, is seen as his value or worth.
For instance if a girl was paid #10,000 for sex, that amount of money is her value.
Now our soul is our life and the value of our soul is the amount of money or treasure we can accept to put our lives on the line.
For instance, armed robbers and kidnappers are ready to put their lives on the balance because of money, properties and ransom.
The same way, drug traffickers put their lives on the line to traffic hard drug to hostile countries.
In like manner, prostitutes and harlots put their precious lives at risk because of money, gifts, enjoyment and pleasure.
And the Bible says in Matthew 16:26 {For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?}
What shall it profit you if you are given cars, houses and plenty money to do evil things that can end your precious life?.
What is the essence of money or properties to you when you may not live to enjoy them?.
Every now and then we hear of young girls who were butchered for money ritual and millions of young beautiful girls are still rushing into the despicable business.
Everyday we hear of armed robbers and kidnappers whose lives were wasted by security agents, yet many young boys and girls are still joining criminal gangs.
Everyday our young men are being executed like Easter goats across Asian and European countries, yet many desperate young men are still begging to join the illicit drug business.
Year after year we rejoice over our young men who returns from abroad to build mansions and organise lavish parties, but months and years later, we begins to cry because they were executed for drug trafficking.
What shall it profit you to acquire money and properties and die afterwards.
If only in this world you have hope, you are of all men most miserable – 1Corin 15:19
