“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.” Mark 8:35
This is one of those powerful lessons in the Scriptures that we often fly over and miss. “If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it.” Life is not something that we hang onto, Life is something that we live and in the living of life, we experience life. Life with all of it’s ups and downs is living and living is much more than just existing.
The key to really living is not trying to live life, but trying to give life, because when we give our life away to love others as we have been loved, then we really begin to live. The good news is that God loves each of us and has an amazing plan for our lives.
Don’t miss life, because you have gotten distracted by trying to make a living. Live life by giving your life to your Creator by serving and making life better for others. You will find that life is a whole lot more fun, when you focus on more than just existing…
