Dying to Self
He must become greater; I must become less.
This morning I happened to see a story online about a musician who requires roses and buckets of chicken and juice prepared a certain way or she won't perform. And it made me think of the above verse. Sadly enough I see selfish behavior each and every day where I live and work as I'm sure many of you do. It always leaves me shaking my head and wondering how we can even stand each other with the "it's all about me attitudes." I see this at work especially which is sad since I'm in healthcare and the needs of the customer are supposed to come first. You can definitely tell the Christians from the non. I don't understand how people can look at someone who's totally dependent on them for their daily needs and be more concerned about themselves. I see this in children today. I realize that this is our future that we are allowing to carry on like this. Nothing is ever good enough for them and they have no concern about taking care of the things they or others have. At what point did our nation become so materialistic and so self-absorbed? Everything revolves around cell phones and big ticket items that no one can afford to pay for. People pay no attention to what's around them so, they certainly won't care about Christ. It's such a shame. I try to witness as much as I can in a gentle way because I'm not all that secure in my biblical knowledge so, I rely on prayer to help me to witness and be a good example with my daily routines. I know in the bible there are instances where one person has made a difference so, I figure if my actions and words can even catch the attention of one person and help lead them to God then, I'm doing what needs to be done. I don't mind losing myself to God, especially as the things of this world continue to get worse and disgust me more and more each day.
