“He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake, shall find it.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it - He that saves his life by denying me, shall lose it eternally; and he that loseth his life by confessing me, shall save it eternally. And as you shall be thus rewarded, so in proportion shall they who entertain you for my sake. #Mt 16:25|; John 12:25.
Mt 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it. Whoever counts his life of so much value that he will preserve it by sacrificing his Christian integrity, or will renounce his religion to save his life, will find in the end that he has lost his soul forever for the sake of a few fleeting years; while he who gives up all things, even life itself, will find an abundant reward in the life eternal. "All self-seeking is self-losing". The Divine law is always to give in order to receive.
