On Fridays, I am posting quotes from some of my favorite authors as a way to review golden nuggets of truth and keep them in the forefront of my own heart and mind throughout the year.
I also hope it serves you, as a reader of RevivingTheSoul, in offering comfort, encouragement, and strength for your own journey in the ups and downs of life on this side of heaven.
This quote is from Jim Elliot, one of my heroes. He was one of five missionaries killed while attempting to preach the gospel to the Auca Indians in Ecuador in 1956. This is something Jim had written in his journal:
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
