Giving leads to receiving abundant life.

“The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
The way of life that Jesus espouses in the above statement is the opposite of what the popular culture espouses.
Instead of striving to be served, to win and be on top…Jesus says to strive to serve those who are losing and be with them at the bottom.
Instead of ascending society’s ladder of success to gain power, prestige and possessions…Jesus says to descend that ladder and help the lowly, the poor and the outcast.
And the kicker is…it’s only through following Jesus’ example of self-emptying for the sake of others that we paradoxically find meaning, fulfillment, wholeness and completion.
In other words…we find our true selves.
We become the unique manifestation of Love that we were intended to be.
The kingdom of God is at hand right now…in this moment…depending on which philosophy you choose.
I’ve tried both. One leads to a dead end while the other leads to abundant life.
Each moment provides us with a band new opportunity to choose.
