"Whosoever Shall Seek to Gain His Life Shall Lose It: but Whosoever Shall Lose His Life Shall Preserve It"
"Whosoever shall seek to gain his life shall lose it: but whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it."
Luke 17: 33
American Standard Version
Life certainly has a weird sense of humor.
Oftentimes when we want to achieve something the solution lies smack opposite the direction that we have chosen. Or maybe in a certain case we should have chosen the opposite direction but when we look back on our life later it turns out that everything turned out just fine. 'Coulda woulda shoulda' never solves anything.
To understand whether the particular situation we find ourselves in requires one direction or the other or a third or a forth one – therein lies the irony of life.
When you understand it, things start to become easier and harder at the same time. But hey, as the saying goes: "Nothing is easy but who wants nothing?"
You want something. Everyone wants something.
To get it, you gotta lose it just to regain it later. And value it all the more.
Our life is precious. Give your moments value, value your moments.
