Soul Satisfaction

Luke 9:24-25
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself?

What are you living your life for? What is the purpose? If it is to satisfy your ego…it is to satisfy your “false self.” As I have said in the past, “ego” stands for: “Edge God Out.” The false self will never be satisfied. It subsists on a program for “happiness” set up in childhood in which every whim and self-centered desire needs to be satisfied. Lent is a good time to practice letting that system for happiness dry up. It is a false system leading nowhere. Live to love and live to serve. Follow in the ways of Jesus…and you will find soul satisfaction…and your “true self.”

Suggested song of the day– “I Want to Follow You” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
