David C. Egner of RBC ministries wrote a daily devotional yesterday that discusses Proverbs 11:30: “He who wins souls is wise.”
Guess who they mentioned in in the piece?!
But apparently, $504 is nothing compared to what you should be paying to convert souls to Christ.
According to Egner:
The apostle Paul gave a lot more than $504 in his endeavor to bring the gospel to people who had never heard of Jesus Christ. He traveled many long, hard miles across the world. In a gripping account he told of his experiences: shipwreck, imprisonment, floggings, stoning, beatings, exhaustion, hunger, cold, and peril (2 Cor. 11:23-28).
Man! No Christians offered up the willingness to get flogged in lieu of cash bids!
This devotional has taught me one thing: I’m cheap.
The next auction for my soul will be in increments of years of imprisonment the bidder will endure.
