We often read about statements Jesus made that sound wrong. We don’t understand them. They seem "Upside Down". Jesus made one of those statements in John 12:25 when He said, “Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” I thought we were to be loving life not hating it? As we trust in the instructions of Jesus, we experience the eternal life He speaks of.
