“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it will produce much grain.”
Jesus had to die so we can live, just like taking dry seeds that are “dead” and then planted to produce more! The same goes for us; in many situations we have to die, give up having things our way!
“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
When we have disagreements or differences of opinion, realize no one wins until someone gives up and dies to self! Don’t push so hard to get your way. Often times giving up and giving in gives you a win! Don’t assume that it’s always the other person who needs to give up.
“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.”
Remember, Jesus is perfect in every way. He is never wrong! So if He gave up His life so we can live, I believe in many situations we can give up our lives and opinions too, we don’t always have to be right and often times we’re not! Have a blessed day giving up our lives to the LORD!
