Sojourners Verse and Voice – 8 February 2023

February 8, 2023

Verse of the day
For what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life?

– Matthew 16:26

Voice of the day
For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.

– Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning (1946)

Prayer of the day
Transcendent God, hone our commitments to causes greater than ourselves; may we not worship the idol of success.
