Toxic assets

The world economic crisis intoduced us to a new type of asset. It’s called a toxic asset. Toxic assets are loans where the value of the security is now less than the amount of the loan. It’s not really an asset at all, it’s a liability.
But toxic assets are not just a banking phenomenon; they can also be spiritual. In this sense a toxic asset is anything we once thought of as a benefit, but which we now realise is hurting us spiritually. Some people are aware of pleasures that once seemed to make life more exciting but are now destroying their lives. For others the undisciplined pursuit of some ambition may be doing the same.
Jesus said; ‘What profit is there if you gain the whole world but lose your soul.’ Don’t allow your assets to turn toxic. Remember, the only assets that last forever are faith, hope and love
