“Those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.” – Mark 8:35
What are the prizes in life worth winning? This is the question that haunts me.
I don’t want to rush through life pursuing one thing after another, only to find in the end that the only prize worth choosing is the prize I’ve managed to lose. I could spend my whole life collecting the nicest clothes, the smartest car, or the most notorious name in history and still lose my own soul.
Jesus asks me even harder questions. What am I willing to die for, or what in my life must die so that I can truly live? I may not always choose the easy ways; in fact, at times I will need to make hard choices. Some may be choices for which I even choose to die.
The path I see before me is full of choices. As a capable young adult, I look at the future and choose those vocations and avocations that are worthy of my time and calling as a person of God. I sort out what is important and put my efforts there.
Today I choose prizes worthy of my calling as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
