What is the worth of a soul? A coin is minted for a purpose. It is meant to be spent, treasured and valued. But not to be lost. When a coin is lost, it is worthless to the owner and the creator. It doesn't matter how valuable it may be intrinsically. If it is lost, it is lost. Which is worth more on the ocean floor, a hundred dollar gold piece or a dime? As long as they are both on the ocean floor, both have the same value. Lost men are like lost silver. As long as a man is lost, he is out of circulation. God made you for a purpose. He wants you in circulation to spend and b e spent for His glory.
