Powerful Paradox

The Master Teacher often used the tool of paradox-the idea that something sounds impossible or seemingly contradictory initially, but the more you think about it the more it might be true. The first shall be last and the greatest is the one who serves. To find something you have to lose something, and the way in is out. You will never be more mature than when you are acting like a child. There are these truths that simply get you to think. In fact, the only way they will ever make sense is by seriously thinking about them. Scan through the words of Christ in red and you will discouver the upside-down kingdom Jesus teaches about. Moreover, the method of stretching their thinking with the powerful paradox is a tool that strengthens the mind.
