Verse 25: The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
This verse stood out to me in today’s qt, because I love my life, and Jesus says that the man who loves his life will lose it. Should I be alarmed? I don’t see much benefit or justifications to hating anything, so I don’t know.
Maybe it doesn’t mean what I think it means. Perhaps it means whether I’m living for myself with me as my top priority vs. living according to Galations 2:20. Even this, I should probably keep in mind not to let myself try to take the thrown of Jesus in my life. This makes more sense, but maybe I’m stretching my interpretation a little.
Application: read Thessalonians and pray for cell group laser tag game and for the two new people coming today
