Live Your Life Well – Beloved Women – April 13, 2020
READ: “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”(Matthew 10: 39 NIV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: How do you describe a well-lived life? Is it by a person’s bank account, number of Facebook likes, or accomplishments? Although man values these standards, God uses a different barometer to evaluate the impact of our lives.
By God’s standards, a life well lived comes by learning the art of dying to ourselves daily. In death, we discover life. This type of significance isn’t measured by material possessions but by our character. This is the type of life worth dying for.
In Matthew 10:39, Christ went against the current of human wisdom that encourages us to find our lives by amassing more and more for ourselves. Instead, Christ said as we give our lives away sacrificially, we will find it. A life focused on helping others is a life well lived.
PRAY: Dear God, Thank You for Christ’s example of losing his life for the sake of mankind. Help me to choose to lose my life for Your sake so that I will find it. In Jesus’ Christ’s Name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: How might God be calling you to sacrifice for the sake of others?
SHARE: Significance isn’t measured by material possessions but by our character.
