Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests.
The earthly perception that following Jesus brings prosperity, power, and position is imperatively false. An earthly profit should never be expected in our faithful focus forward. We must deny ourselves to live for Jesus. As we carry the cross and live identified with Christ, we should expect the same difficulties that He faced. The expectation should be persistent persecution. “Rejoice as you share in Christ’s sufferings” (1 Peter 4:13). This persecution should never cause us to lose focus but should develop perseverance to complete the journey. If you are blessed with a profit, use it for heavenly purposes (Luke 16:10).
Pray to follow Jesus for the right reasons.
Live Forever Free,
