To lose an entire life for one shekel?
Recently I watched a video showing people busy with their mobile phone and they're falling down the street or bumping into a page. Sometimes there were those who fell on the stairs and those who were trampled to death because they were busy and concentrated on their mobile phone.
Is it worth losing your life for a mobile message? Video on mobile?
Our lives are very expensive and it's a shame to lose them for such cheap things!
The Gospel of Matthew
13 When Jesus came to the environs of Philip's Caesarea, he asked his disciples, "What do the men say about the Son of Man, who is He?"
14 Some said, "Some say, 'John the Baptist', others say 'Elijah' and others - 'Jeremiah or one of the prophets.'"
15 He asked them, "And what are they saying, Who am I?"
16 Peter answered and said, "You are the Messiah, the Son of God!"
Jesus said to him, "Blessed is Simon bar-Jonah, for he has not revealed flesh and blood to you, but my Father in heaven." 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and I will build up the gates of Saul for this purpose. And whatever is forbidden to the land shall be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on the earth shall be exalted in heaven. " 20 Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.
Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he had to go to Jerusalem and suffer greatly from the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and to be killed on the third day. 22 Then Peter took him to the side and began to scold him, saying, "God forbid, sir, do not this thing be yours!"
23 Jesus said to the king, "Turn away from Satan, you are an obstacle to me, for your heart is not in the words of God, but according to the words of men."
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone wants to come after me, who will deny himself, take his crucifix, and go after me: 25 For he who seeks to save his soul will lose it, but he who loses his soul for my sake will find it. 27 What shall man give in return for his life? 27 The son of man shall come in honor of his father with his angels, and then he shall pay to every man as he did.
