Athlete, Do Not Neglect Your Soul

"For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?" Mark 8:36

Don't spend your whole life trying to "gain the whole world" and lose your soul in the process. It's easy to get caught up in the rat race of trying to accomplish all of our goals and get everything that we ever wanted. We are told to dream big, and then to chase that dream down with everything we have in us.

Jesus reminds us that we need to care for and protect our soul, and not "lose it" in the process of trying to get the most out of life. Soul care usually slips down our priority list when life gets busy. When we finally slow down enough, then we usually start to realize that we have been chasing the wrong things and need to "get serious" about our faith again. Instead of waiting for the next speed bump to hit in your life, choose today to begin a new rhythm of taking care of your soul.

Take a few minutes right now to pause and listen to Jesus' voice. Let Him examine your soul and
show you the areas where you need forgiveness, healing, or strengthening.
