“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” - Philippians 2:3-4
Happy Monday Love Warriors! Today is Mantra Monday!
The Bible has so many wonderful anecdotes. Did any of you catch A.R. Bernard's @therealarbernard message yesterday? So good and so powerful. We're living in an era where its all about selfies and self-promotion. It's easy to become selfish and self-centered (there is a difference). I don't know about you but I get tired of myself sometimes. Haha! It's not easy for me to promote myself. I have to make a concerted effort and it's gotten a lot easier for me. But it's important that we balance Self with others. Selfishness is not cute. AT ALL! We are not here to be in service of ourselves or to just manifest what WE want. God doesn't care about all that. He cares about how we help and serve others. I remember years ago thinking that my life was about my dreams coming true. I'll say again, God doesn't care about all that. I'll repeat to you what God spoke to me, "It's not about you!" It really isn't. And when that message truly sinks in and you (we) start realizing the power and joy in serving God's people, that's where true bliss is experienced. When we become in service to others the relationships, connections, and Love we experience goes to a whole other level. You feel God's Love. So, I'm gonna be frank, it's not about you, your dreams, or your material possessions. It's about how you Love and how you serve. So, I want to hold a mirror up for you, if you're a selfish person, and yes you know if you are, try placing the needs of someone else before your own today. Think of someone else. You will experience so much more joy and Love! Let's remove the superficial "self-love", which is actually self-conceit, and let's learn to love ourselves in a deep and meaningful way, not by insecurity with ourselves (the root of self-conceit), so that we can love others BIGGER! •
