Bible Studies Verse of the Day By Lynne Conley / last year Share Tweet Pin Share Gaining Possessions In Matthew 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Gaining possessions and material wealth but losing your soul? Losing your friends and losing your relationship with Jesus Christ is putting water in a bucket with a holes all through the bucket. It’s like we are planting pennies in the ground and expecting them to sprout growth. — If you feel this verse of the day is what you needed today, please consider sharing on social media.
