Give It Up & Gain it back

Would you be prepared to give up, just so you might gain? Sounds counter-cultural, isn’t it? Jesus said,

“And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life” Matthew 19:29.

It is so easy to become very attached to these, and more, that they actually rob us of the freedom to live freely and enjoy life abundantly as promised by Christ. Placed in the right priority or perspective, that is Christ above all, they can rather help us to achieve our purpose in life more effectively.

Give it up to gain it back.

Every Blessing

About Just-A-Thought

Life can get very busy, fast and heavy. Sometimes living can become a challenge as life seems to always throw us at the deep end. In times like that, we need encouragement, a word of hope, a voice that assures that it gets better; that we should hang on. Just-A-Thought offers Christian words of hope in dispair, light in darkness, and strength to carry on.
