Get over yourself …

Have you noticed how many pastors talk and write about seeking opportunity for self?

So many sermons, books, blog posts, tweets and other postings are about searching for opportunities that benefit yourself, that make you happy, you more prosperous, you “better off.”

And then we open scripture and read something different …

“Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone — especially to those in the family of faith,” Galatians 6:10.

We hear too much about how to do well for ourselves, and too little about doing good to others.

When was the last time you sought opportunity to be a blessing to others? How often do you think there are such opportunities in your life? How often do you take advantage of these kinds of opportunities?

Are you purposeful about doing good and being a blessing to others, or do you still need to get over yourself?
