He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Assets And Liabilities

Phi 3:7-8, 7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. 8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.

The health and the growth of the business are measured by the assets and liabilities. Assets are properties or things or people of great value. In accounting, they are items on balance sheet that constitute the total value of an organization. Liabilities for the sake of the point I want to make are things that hinder (people, organization, business) from living, growing and thriving.

Paul valued things he pursued as assets in his life. In Christ he found everything he needed. What had been gain to him now seemed but liabilities. He had found the pearl of great price, and was only too glad to sacrifice all else to purchase and keep it. The more he pursued Christ, the more he was content. He had a great need for Christ and a great Christ for his needs. Christ is all he had. This ought to be our pursuit as well.
