Pause for Thought

When Atahualpa, Emperor of the Inca, was captured by the Spanish conquistadors, he offered to fill a large room half full with gold as a ransom. Why? His life was more valuable that all that gold. When wealthy people have a family member kidnapped, they sometimes pay amazing amounts of money to save the loved ones. Why? They are more valuable than money. Jesus invited us to ponder what’s really valuable in our lives: “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?” Florin MocanuPastor, Worksop Christian Centre.
