Selfless



“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”‭‭ Galatians‬ ‭5:22-23

In this selfie driven society, what we need is less of us and more of God. 

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. 

As I draw closer to God and surrender to His will, it’s really less about me and more about Him. 

As I listen to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to work in me, the layers of selfishness are slowly peeled away. 

Yes….,,,less of me and more of You God. 

That’s really what this world needs. 

The resulting fruit is so sweet. 

Love,  joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, who could not do with more of these?

Let’s all take a look at our lives. Do we think only of ourselves or do we think of others? 

Are our thoughts centered on how we look, feel, our own comfort only or do we think about those around us who may be in need? 

What we need now more than ever is less selfies which are indicative of self-centered mess and focus our eyes on our Heavenly Father and his ordained purpose for our lives. 

Lord help us do and say those things which are pleasing in Your sight! 

Father, thank you for blessing each of us so wonderfully. Help us to draw close to you and become more like our Savior, Jesus. Lord let the fruit of Your Spirit abound more and more in our lives. Help us to be selfless. 

Amen.
