If I asked you to name instances in Scripture where someone had made a bad bargain, I’m sure you could.
I’m sure ESAU would get a mention. Esau made a bad bargain when he sold his birthright.
Then what about JUDAS? Surely he made a bad bargain in selling his Lord for 30 pieces of silver!
Ananias and Saphira certainly made a bad bargain when they lied to the Holy Spirit about the land they had sold.
We would agree that each of these people made a bad bargain, and I’m sure you could name many others, but there is one which stands out as being the worst bargain of all time.
Jesus spoke of the worst bargain, which is made by many people today.
Jesus posed the question:
What shall it profit a man
if he GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD
and LOSE HIS OWN SOUL?
Surely THAT would have to be the WORST bargain of all.
He who provides for this life
but makes no provision for eternity
is wise for a moment but a fool forever!
CAN YOU THINK OF A WORSE BARGAIN?
What a bargain!
I am Cloudwatcher, a 76 year old Christian lady, happily married to a wonderful man for over 50 years. We have five wonderful sons, all with at least one University degree and in top positions in their chosen fields. One son is still single but four have found perfect wives and they have given us five lovely grandchildren.
I was born in England and while I'm proud of my English heritage, I am doubly proud to be a true-blue, fair-dinkum Aussie.
My husband and I are committed Christians whose first priority is to love and serve our risen Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.
My life story will tell of my journey from abuse to peace. I suffered 22 years of abuse, being constantly told I was totally evil and an ugly freak: no one would ever want me, so I might as well do the world a favour and kill myself.

>> What an exchange! What a bargain!<< I liked this post. I certainly could not think of a worse bargain!
Neither can I – and neither can I think of a better one – His righteousness in exchange for my sin – what could be better?
What a Saviour!
