He is no fool who gives a life he cannot keep for a love he will never lose.

cannot keep for a love he will
never lose.

Whatever this life and this world have to offer, it’s only for a little while. But salvation, souls, and service for the Lord are forever; they are eternal. “And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17). “For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Moses esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt, which could have been his, because he looked to the reward (Hebrews 11:26). He looked beyond his day and all of its problems and temptations and saw Jesus. He had an eye on eternity and its great rewards, and counted the riches of Christ greater than all the riches of Egypt, the richest, most powerful nation on earth in that day, of which he could have been pharaoh (Hebrews 11:24-27).

If we pay the same price and make the same sacrifices, we too can look forward to eternal rewards and everlasting glory. By giving our all to the Lord, we are going to receive so much more. What a small price to pay for all we’re getting in return!
