How to Multiply by Subtracting

We've all heard the old saying that "less is more."  It's one of many bits of wisdom that may seem counter-intuitive. As Jesus neared his final days on earth, he had many counter-intuitive lessons for his disciples, including this: 

"Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you'll have it forever, real and eternal."

Just as he did then, Jesus turns our understanding of life, death, and everything in it, upside down. He offers a better way, if only we're willing to trust and follow.
