LIVE // With many things in life, we often have to weigh the cost versus the reward. Take studying, for example. When you take the time to study, it can cost you a lot of things: hanging out with friends, going to a movie, playing Fortnite, or spending time on your phone. But, there is often a reward, too: you do well on your test, please your parents, and get a good grade in the class. Although following Jesus at times means you’ll have say “no” to things you would want to say “yes” to, Peter tells us our eternal reward—salvation—far outweighs any momentary cost. This week, start a note in your phone to keep track of rewards and benefits that come from saying “yes” to Jesus.
