‘He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose’: – Jim Elliot
These are profound words. Perhaps they have even more impact when you consider that Jim Elliot reached out to a group of people to share the gospel and ended up being murdered by them.

What do you think Elliot means when he speaks of gaining what you cannot lose? How could this way of thinking shape the way you live today?
