The antidote to selfishness might not be selflessness, it might actually be self-love that is rooted in Christ, instead of ourselves.
Let’s turn the focus from ourselves to someone else for just a few hours this week and see what happens!
I am beginning to understand just how freeing it is when life isn’t all about me.
Have you ever uttered this phrase to yourself before? You’re doing some sort of task or interacting with some human and suddenly it hits you: “I’m a jerk!”. That’s not a fun revelation to come to.
Selfishness has a way of stifling us, but God has called us to a better way.
The only way to remove the sin of self from your heart is to invite true Selflessness into your life.
Church is weird and church people are even weirder. But, does that have to be a bad thing? Being selfless is weird. Being devoted is weird. Building relationships is uncomfortable. Doing live together and being accountable to someone is just downright strange. Exhibiting the characteristics of love and joy and peace and patience and kindness are all out of the ordinary. But all of these things are desperately needed. In a society that’s hurting and looking for answers, maybe a little of that weirdness isn’t so bad.
