Sunday Words: Selfishness

Today’s word might hit closer to home then most of us would like to admit. Selfishness is such a common trait these days. It’s almost expected in this society. Which is terribly unfortunate. I know I struggle with selfishness. There are many weekend mornings where I am irritated that I am getting up with the kids while dh is snoring away. The advice I would give to someone who has the “but I deserve this” thoughts…PRAY in that moment. Before opening your mouth to say anything to the person you are resenting..PRAY. Pray for God to correct your heart. Pray for God to soften your heart. Help God help you realize the sin in your heart. Here is today’s scripture:

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.      -Phillipians 2:3-4 NRSV
