To win you have to lose

4 Apr

What is the point in winning (success) if all it does is make you is proud? What’s the point in being proud if it forces you imagine that you are better than everybody else? What is the point in believing you are better than everybody else if it takes you to a place of isolation?

I am convinced that if you “really” want to succeed in life you have to give up on the entire notion of being better. You have to accept that the world is broken, so are all of its inhabitants and so are you. Since it is Easter I am going to tell you that I believe that this place can only be found under the cross of Jesus.

“Who ever wishes to save his own life will lose it,  but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”
