The Cure for Selfishness

  • by

Forgive me for being the one to tell you, but you’re infected. You’re 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? And heavy feet? When a car wants to cut in front of you, do you sense a sudden heaviness of foot on the accelerator? Look into 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’s the cure for selfishness? Get your self out of your eye by taking your eye off your self. Quit staring at the little self, and focus on your great Savior.
