Shopping for Bargains. If we only look at the cost, we will miss the value.

Posted: February 13, 2016 in Uncategorized

At some point in our search for what matters, we know something isn’t right. What we’re looking for is increasingly hard to find, if even possible. There must be something that is essential, and how do you even define meaningful? We’re thinking we would be willing to pay a higher cost but not too high.

One of our friends told us we could get what we’re looking for, but we’re scared to check it out cause there might be too many strings attached. We think it might be valuable, but not many of our friends have bought into it.

John 12:25 in The Word on the Street says “Anyone who clings on desperately to their precious life will lose it. But the guys who see through the shallowness of this life will get limitless life in the next.” That all sounds good, but the cost… So we hold on to doing life our way and continue to run in circles that just keep defining our desperate search as pointless.

So, we want other opinions before we are willing to shell out this kind of cash. We check with Luke cause John might be overstating it. Luke 9:23 in The Message doesn’t give any comfort or maybe we have really found what we are looking for. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat-I am.” Jesus.

WHAT THIS MEANS: This looks like a good investment, but we have to give him the wallet and all the coins (doing life our way). Could be an interesting and meaningful trip. What do you think?
