Here's a really good trade from today's reading: anything for the sake of knowing Christ.
Paul traded in his identity, his comfort, his heritage, his abilities, his victories, his defeats, his EVERYTHING for the sake of knowing Christ.
I don't know what you might be asked to trade today or this week to know Christ. But whatever it is, whatever it costs, whatever its value - it's a good trade.
You get what's eternal for what is temporal. You get what ultimately and fully satisfies for what doesn't sate but save for a moment.
Surrender. Open hands. Blank check. All lead to something that is absolutely worth it.
They lead to Christ.
