2 Corinthians 4:8-9
Opportunity cost is an economic theory that refers to the value lost when making an alternate decision. In day to day life, the term is often used to describe the non-monetary cost associated with making a tough decision. Routinely, correct decisions are tough decisions and initially come at a cost. However, that cost is often recuperated down the road as the right decision pays off. It can be said that the "opportunity" for more later, comes at a "cost" now.
Lord, I may be pressured, perplexed, persecuted and struck down now, but that opportunity will not cost me everything but bring immeasurable value for eternity.
