Abandon this sod house

The ways of the Lord are wonderful and it is worth losing all you have to acquire them.
It is well worth abandoning everything we have in this current wretched and forlorn life in order to become even the least among God's children.
The rich young ruler was asked to sell all he had and give it to the poor and follow Jesus in order to inherit everlasting life.
He refused. He didn't acquire onto eternal life and also he has lost all that he had.
Life is but like a vapor.
It is but here for a short time and then it is gone.
What does it profit a man if he were to gain the riches of the whole world but lose his soul.
Jesus said, "He who would save his life will lose it and he who would lose his life for My sake will save it."
Let us therefore abandon this sod house for a Heavenly Mansion.
