The Cure for Selfishness - February 17, 2016

Forgive me for being the one to tell you—but you’re infected! You are a diseased carrier. You have a case of—brace yourself—selfishness! Don’t believe me? When you look at a group photo, where do you look? And if you look good, do you like the picture?

Do you suffer from clutching hands? Do your fingers ever wrap and close around possessions? How about heavy feet? When a car wants to cut in front of you, do you sense a sudden heaviness of foot on the accelerator?

Look in your eyes…into your pupils. Do you see a tiny figure? An image of a person? An image of you? The self-centered see everything through self. Their motto? It’s all about me! What is the cure for selfishness? Get your self out of your eye by taking your eye off yourself. Quit staring at the little self, and focus on your great Savior!
