DOES JESUS PROMOTE HATRED?

UNDAILY Episode 115


Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.

JOHN 12, 24-26 (NIV)


In the twelfth chapter of the Gospel of John, Jesus speaks of life as a wheat grain that must die to yield fruit. A grain that does not "die" in the earth cannot produce fruit. This metaphor is used by Jesus to remind us of the value of serving the Gospel and our neighbors. This image teaches us about the value of sacrificing our own lives, where sacrifice can take various forms. From giving up personal ambitions for the greater good, dedicating time and energy to serving others, to dying to our own egos to allow the true "I" of God to emerge.
