In his popular book, "Risky Living,"
Jamie Buckingham, once wrote of
at least four Biblically rooted paradoxes...
"The first shall be last and the last shall be first."
"You are allowed to keep only that which you give away."
"In order to live, you have to die."
"To get high, stay low."
We read another paradox some time ago that went
something like this...
If you're born once, you'll die twice
If you're born twice, you'll die once
And we would add...
Total victory comes only through total surrender.
