These are the three most important people in a person’s life. Think about it. If these three are happy and fulfilled, then everything else will fall into place? May sound silly, but this is the truth most of us operate out of. It was the same for the people in Jesus’ time as well.
The problem is that for each of us, at a some point in our life, we found ourselves asking the all important question: “What is it all for?”. What is the sum total of everything we have done, are doing, or will ever do, going to be, and what difference will it make? Jesus taught that if your life is just about you, then at the end, all you will have to show for it is you, and that is a total loss. Those were hard words then, and they are hard words now.
“For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me and the gospel will save it.” Mark 8:35
In other words Jesus says if you continue to fill yourself with only you, then you will be empty. But if you empty yourself of you, then you can be full…Get it?!
