The sacrifice

Temptation is not so much a winged serpent speaking in slit tongues, but rather the fermentation of desire for love.

In laying down our lives, are we called to lay down our souls as well? How am I to lay down my life for a friend if I am to leave everything and follow You? Somewhere I am missing the freedom of this binding and seeing only the paradoxical conflict of earthly and divine loves.
