In many ways, the emptying of self is the greatest adventure of all, for in it, we make room within our hearts for Jesus Christ, the Lord of Life! I love the paradox that the one who loses his life for the sake of the kingdom will find it. In the same way, sacrifice, not self-interest, is the fast lane to joy.
