All of my anger, doubt, and overall problems have been where I have made it all about me as opposed to it being about God. We see this in the Bible over and over again. In the Bible, from the beginning with the story about Adam and Eve to what is going on around us in today’s times, you can see when people put themselves in the center to meet there own needs, life will become a mess.
“Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you’ll have it forever, real and eternal. John 12:24-25 (MSG)
Is it possible to not make it about yourself? Do you hold onto life to the point it is going to destroy you? Can you let go?
If you have not read the Bible, try. If you have not read the book “Purpose Driven Life” I would recommend it (The Purpose Driven Life). If you have not prayed for you to stop focusing on yourself and focus on others, pray and ask God for help now!
