Profit and Loss

“But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.” (Phi 3:7–8)

Value is a concept that is important in all businesses. We need to express true value to our clients and customers to ensure their business and to get them to purchase our products or services.

How we value something determines what we will pay for it. When we value something very highly, we will sacrifice a lot to attain it. Here Paul puts his previous life and wealth into perspective compared to the value of knowing Jesus. He counted all his previous gains and what he had lost as pure rubbish—just nothing—compared with the relationship he now had with Jesus. Are we that committed?

Quick Prayer: All value is expressed in You. Amen.
