Soul’s Worth? Christ’ Name Sake, Save Your Life! — Count the Costs #2

Jesus Predicts His Death

Matthew 16

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. 25 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

26b And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?

Matthew 16:27b

Necklace Jewels of Precious Protection, Proverbs 3 #3

Wisdom is Precious

Wisdom Bestows Well-Being

My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them, for they will refresh your soul.

They are like jewels on a necklace.

Proverbs 3:21-22

Wisdom Will Provide Protection for You!

They keep you safe on your way, and your feet will not stumble. You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly. You need not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked, for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

Proverbs 3:23-26
