I READ: Philippians 2:3, James 3:16
Selfishness is a trait that can lead to division and loss of love towards one another. Unfortunately, a lot of God’s children have these qualities which cause others to view them no different than worldly people. War, murder, and divorce happen because the parties involved would rather maintain their ego and not humble themselves. In order for us to get rid of this trait, we have to humble ourselves in our pursuit of self-satisfaction and self-benefit and instead prioritize the interest of our peers. Serving is one of the many ways we can erode selfishness. When we continue to separate ourselves from our ego, our hearts will begin to be humbled and we will have a willingness to sacrifice for others. This action will strengthen our community and make our community harmonious. When this begins to take place in our lives, God will command His blessings in our community.
I DECLARE: James 3:16 – For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
I DO: What action will I take today after meditating on the Word of God?
I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit
