And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

—1 John 2:17

What is a soul? Maybe you’ve never really thought about it. And yet, every human being on earth has a soul given to them by God himself.  

The Scripture says that when God created Adam, he breathed the breath of life into him and Adam became a living soul. God did that very thing for you and for me when he breathed the breath of life into us!

So you might even say that your soul is the “you” of you. It is your innermost person. And it’s a part of you that only God can see and know. 

And at the same time, it is your soul that makes it possible for you to know God and to live forever, because your soul is immortal, just as God is immortal. So your soul has incredible value. And Jesus proved that when he ransomed your soul on the cross so that you could live for eternity with God! 

You may own a lot of valuable things, but you own nothing more valuable than your soul. It is of infinite value and of eternal worth.

So let me ask you today, are you caring for your soul as the precious gift from God that it is? Please don’t neglect it, but nourish it by spending time in the Scripture and by praising and worshipping your creator.

NOTHING YOU OWN IS MORE VALUABLE THAN YOUR SOUL.
