Does this mean defeat for the one who is being singled out, or does it mean Defeat for the selfish person???
I BELIEVE ...... that He who has a selfish spirit in their heart, will only move
I don't know about the rest of you, but to me....Selfishness is just one of those things that I despise seeing in others. It is so unbecoming and speaks loud and clear to me about the character of an individual who feels that the world owes them something!
You know.....I sometimes believe that I must be a bit naive about this world that we live in today. Where is all the selfishness coming from???
I was raised during a time when we were given things out of necessity rather than out of want! To have a closet full of clothes was un-heard of.....unless you were WEALTHY! To have your own vehicle while in High School was one of those things that most of us did not expect, and few had. There certainly were NO hand outs of any sort. Heck....in my family, we all SHARED most things. I promise....if it wasn't against the school rules, I probably would have had to share clothes with my brothers as well!! Nj Can't you just see it now? Me, wearing a pair of Levi jeans, a button up shirt and some cowboy boots! NOT!!
I hear kids say......"Well, times have changed?" WELL...yes time have changed!! But....what everyone also needs to know is that along with ALL the change, it has also brought about disrespect for others......Disrespect for individuals.
It is God's desire for us to LOVE one another. Love does not hold back, and it sure does not hold back the giving of things that can benefit and help others!!!!! No....love puts others before ourselves.
I'm telling you......Selfishness is one of those things that sets my insides on fire. I don't like to see it in adults and I don't like seeing it in young kids.
I have to ask......WHERE IS ALL OF THIS COMING FROM???
