Such a Loss

The clock of life is wound but once,

And no man has the power

To tell just when the hands will stop

At late or early hour.

To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed.

To lose one’s health is more.

To lose one’s soul is such a loss

That no one can restore.

Jesus asks a very pointed question in Mark 8:36—“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?”

In spite of such a dire warning from the Son of God, many people chase after the world and all it has to offer, not giving much thought to their eternal soul.

Don’t be one of them!
