Would you describe yourself as selfless?
Selflessness is something we do not find easily in today’s world. Because true love is selfless. It requires accountability, sincerity and vulnerability to become more selfless in God. Do you serve more, give more, thank more? So how do you become more selfless in a world that is so selfish?
Where God calls us to that place. To live a life that is accountable to His laws. Our will must bend to His. Our will must surrender to His truth.
- He expects more than doing what is right,
- He demands actions that are tireless and contributed in truth and holiness,
When we don’t have a reason to help others. Or give more than is expected. And gain more of God in our lives. We step up to becoming more selfless. To be distinctly set apart. If we want to become more like Christ, then we need to work hard as if everything we are doing is for God, not a selfish reputation. Every moment exercising our faith through God’s grace.
Imagine if we spent all our time talking about God’s goodness, faithfulness, grace and mercy. Instead of what we watched on television last night. Or the latest item in our shopping basket. Although there is nothing wrong with any of these things. How much time do we talk about God in our daily lives? Share His love by unconditionally giving of our time and resources? Simply doing good by thinking less of ourselves and more about others. Helping by giving to the sick, poor and imprisoned people in our local communities.
My prayer ~
To make a conscious choice everyday to chose holiness above compromise…
To seek God’s help in my greatest failings…
To be sincere and genuinely care…
