Recommendation Saturday: How to Save a Life

Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? – Mark 8:34-36

  2. Shelly, this post & video brought back to mind the song we sung as kids … “Oh be careful little eyes, little tongue, little feet, etc.” It truly is not only God who sees. Wonderful to be her again. Have a great Saturday!

    • One of my favorite songs to sing with my children, Joanne! Such a big lesson in a sweet song. Thank you for being here! Heart Hugs, Shelly <3

  3. Oh my goodness. That video really expressed your message here. It’s one that is so important for us to remember. Do we live out our faith in everything we do? I think of that often because I want the love I have for Him and my gratitude for the new life He gave me to be reflected in everything I do. I believe that is the best way to lead others to Him. Great message, Shelly. Love you so much.
