I think that in society, people has a tendency to look for “immediate results” without thinking through the consequences of our actions and decisions. People will do “what feels good”, “what makes me popular”, “what my friends/family are doing”. Unfortunately, when we make decisions like that, we are not looking into the future when those decisions/actions turn out to be bad for us. As we begin to suffer, there is a general thought of “I wish I would have not done that”. Well, the same can be said for our spiritual walks.
In Mark 6:36 Mark writes, “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”
Yes, there are many things that we can do that will “profit” us here on earth, but what will they do for our soul?
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
