The saying “all’s fair in love and war” isn’t true. Nothing in life is fair, especially love and war. This world was made so that those who pushed their way to the stop by stepping on the heads of others would succeed. Debauchery equals happiness, and it’s absolutely okay to ignore the needs of others, if it makes you feel uncomfortable with your own wealth.
That’s why people like me and a lot of you guys feel on the outside of things, socially. That’s why there’s an ultimatum between comfort and Kingdom productivity. That’s why we will never fit in, never be part of the world, never have popularity or trendiness. Life isn’t fair, and people like us end up on the losing side.
But the best part is that it’s a temporary loss, a completely unsubstantial sacrifice in the face of the greater reward. Who cares about fitting in for fifty years, when you spend eternity in Paradise? What’s getting shoved into the lockers in the school hallway, when there’s gold-paved streets with pearl and diamond waiting just beyond the horizon?
People say they fear death, and I don’t understand that. It may be kind of scary at first, as all new things are, but once you get used to the idea, it’s really not that crazy. As long as you’re absolutely sure where you’re going, it’s not the end of a lifetime but the beginning of an eternal adventure. (Just don’t tell people you’re looking forward to dying, because then you sound totally emo.)
And in Heaven, love and war as we know them won’t even exist. Same with popularity.
Can you say “last laugh”?
