207 – Be Selfish or Serve Others
September 6, 1986
I have become so disgusted with myself—and while repenting and broken I came upon the book by Charles Swindoll, Improving Your Serve-The Art of Unselfish Living.
I have been here before, and I am here again. Self-centered.
I’m too concerned with ME, my shower, my letters home, my Bible study, my nerves, my image, my mouth—and I have been becoming angry over so much waiting, my imperfection, kids’ imperfection, etc. Unwilling to make the real sacrifices like getting up early and working harder on having a cheerful heart.
But Lord help me to be more willing to die to myself and to be a servant. Like my husband. But especially like You. Dan is looking to You, looking to serve You. I want to, too.
Matthew 20: 25a, 28 But Jesus called them to Himself, and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them… just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
1 Peter 5:2a Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly…
Thank You that You give me attitude adjustments and do not leave me to myself. There is ALWAYS hope in Christ my Lord.
