You gain your life just to lose your soul
Matthew 16:26 (NIV) says:
What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
In their quest to attain the addictions of the world (such as fame, money, drugs), many lose things much rarer such as family, friends and their soul.
