John 12

Daily Devotional from John 12--

Verse 24
Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

The principles of the Kingdom are often counterintuitive—
You want to live? Then you must die.
You want to win? The you must lose.
You want to receive? You must give.
You want to rise? You must sink.
You want to be great? Be small.
You want to be first? Be last.
You want to be strong? Be weak.
You want to be wise? Be my fool.
You want to be free? Be my slave.
You want to find rest? Take my yoke.
You want to save your life? Lose it.
You want to store up treasure? Give it away.

His ways are not our ways. His thoughts are not our thoughts. So, don’t do what comes naturally. Look to Jesus, and trust his lead, even when his ways seem counterintuitive.
