Are we seeking God? Or are we just using God as another way to life-hack our problems? A Christianity life-hack? Life-hack is defined in the urban dictionary as: A tool or technique that makes some aspect of one's life easier or more efficient. We “hack” everything now.

Jesus says if you love your life you will lose it. Lose your life for him and you will find it.
- For whoever would save his life will lose it, Luke 9:24
