None of us want to be known as selfish, and yet we’ve all looked at the last piece of pizza and tried to grab it first. We’ve all nabbed those extra clothes from the sale rack just so no one else could get to them. We’ve all called shot-gun, wrestled for the remote, or raced to the good bathroom after a road trip. We’ve all been selfish. Why? No one likes to be around people who are always putting themselves first, but we all keep finding ourselves there wondering where that intense sense of self-centeredness comes from. For the next few weeks we’re going to talk about the source of and appropriate response to these feelings in our new series called “Mine.”
Last week’s bottom line: To overcome selfishness: serve others.
This week’s bottom line: To control selfishness, do to others what you would have them do to you.
