YOU WILL GIVE YOUR SOUL AND YOU WILL GIVE MUCH MORE

WHEN YOU GIVE UP YOUR SOUL, YOU GIVE UP MUCH MORE

For what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mk 8:37

All of the translations I looked up say the same thing. And in my mind, I first think shouldn’t it say, “What will a man GET in exchange for his soul.” But all of the translations say, what will a man “GIVE” for his soul. This is interesting to think about. We give up our soul and we give up something else too. There’s no real “getting” in the transaction Satan has conned you into. When you give up your soul, you give up even more than that.

When you give up your soul, you give up peace, knowledge, wisdom, relationships, prosperity, joy, and so much more. When you give up your soul, you might get an immediate sensation of pleasure, a few moments of gratification, but these are fleeting and at the end of the day in darkness there is only emptiness. Indeed, give up your soul and what more will you give?!
