What is of value?

The person who doesn't know the Lord, who is working in the flesh, achieves nothing of permanent value. In the flesh he may gain the whole world but he loses the thing of most value to himself, his own soul. The most valuable possession a person can ever have is Christ. He is the pearl of great price. To have Him is to have the greatest possible profit.

YOu are so right PM! Can you believe that some people have everything in the world such as life, liberty, freedom, material things and thre life is so perfect yet they dont ever give thanks to god? I pray and hope that people will turn around one day.

Now just what would you take to loose The Holy Spirit? It is by far our most valuable possession.

Osray, I agree that the Holy Spirit is extremely valuable in our lives. However,we wouldn't have the Holy Spirit if it wasn't for Christ's death on the Cross. That's where I'm coming from regarding this post. And, the Holy Spirit would never divert our focus from Christ to himself. Blessings...
