“Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it.”
Life is a process of letting go. It’s just the opposite of what our egos and our culture tell us. They say…grab all you can and stockpile it and define yourself by it…whether it is money, material possessions, degrees or titles. Jesus says that if you cling to these things…you will never discover your true self…the life that you were meant to have. All those things will sooner or later deteriorate and eventually disintegrate. When you are willing to release those things from your grasp…enjoying them for what they are…but not defining yourself by them…you will actually discover your true self…the you that God intended. You are ultimately a child of God and loved infinitely for no other reason than that.
