Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me. (John 12:23-26)
Jesus tells us in this parable we must completely give up our selves to him, look toward the eternal and follow Him.
Becoming selfless in all we do, focusing on Jesus brings us peace and joy no matter what happens around us.
God is good.
