In just a few weeks, athletes will be attempting to live up to the Olympic motto: Citius - Altius - Fortius, usually translated as "Faster, Higher, Stronger." Of course, they will want to make sure they do the right part of the motto for the correct event. The strongest runner doesn't necessarily win; the highest jumper may not come in first in swimming, and the fastest long jumper may not leap the furthest. It is important to know how to win if you want the medal.
Jesus teaches a new way to look at winning in life (John 12:24-25). This week we will find out when losing is actually winning.
