Thought of the day
Thought of the day:
“What good would it do a man to gain everyone if he lost his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? ” These are the simple questions by which the Savior of the world has directed all of us to look at life itself and at the same time at its fragile and ephemeral trajectory.
Living in a postmodern society interested only in the style described simply by the expression ‘here and now’, we, the contemporary believers of recent times, have inevitably become contaminated with the chaotic way of life of those around us.
Without realizing it, we have thus transformed ourselves from the people who built each day around the mentality and will of the Creator, into long-distance runners in an endless cycle of deceptions, belonging to a society that, although it wants to be ‘technologically evolved’, Analyzed in detail, it quickly betrays its “social” and spiritual gaps.
Before he died poisoned by his servants, Alexander the Great, the greatest and richest Emperor of our world, sent a shocking message to posterity:
‘I entered this world empty-handed and I’m leaving it the same way now’
The famous Emperor understood on his deathbed what each of us will invariably understand at some point; Namely, that regardless of height, color, or wealth, we will take nothing with us on the other side, except for the portfolio of deeds we will have done in this life; For there, before the Creator, that Good God, but also just as equal, only the deeds of faith transcribed in daily practice will make the difference between eternal life or, on the contrary, eternal death.
So, like faithful and obedient children, let us learn today that we must prioritize all aspects of our lives, following God’s prescriptions to the detriment of the callings of nature. Let us endeavor to fill our minds and souls with the Teachings of the Lord Jesus, absorbing His Word and applying it in our lives so that looking to the light that is in us, all those lost in the thick fog of sin may come. To the truth.
