  • Lot’s wife gave up her life for a single glance back at Sodom
  • Korah gave up his life for a run at power
  • Achan gave up his life for a few items of clothes and a little wealth
  • Samson gave up his life for relief from the nagging of a wicked woman
  • Absalom gave up his life for a seat on a throne
  • Ahab gave up his life for a vineyard of grapes
  • Haman gave up his life for a bow from Mordecai
  • Judas gave up his life for approximately $30
  • Ananias and Sapphira gave up their lives for an infinitesimal percentage of the world’s riches.
  • Christians must give up their lives: to the Lord (2 Cor. 8:5) for His sake (Luke 17:33) on the altar of service (Rom. 12:1-2).
