"For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing."
James 3:16 NASB
Selfishness. Every fibre of mankind's being screams this word. It is because of our selfishness there is divorce, dishonesty, disunity and every other evil thing.
This very thing causes one brother to murder another, a king to drive a whole race to cruel slavery, a people to crucify their blameless King and the list goes on.
Selfishness is a deadly poison that hinders the work of the selfless-themed Gospel. It must be eradicated from our daily lifestyle, and this is only possible with God's grace and strength.
As quoted by Keith Green: "it is so hard to see when my eyes are on me." Certainly, how true that is. Let us cast our eyes upon our Lord Jesus Christ. May the Holy Spirit guide us this day.
