Unselfish - my new definition

Unselfish - putting what the Lord wants for us ahead of what we want for us, or what others want for us...

All my life, I have felt like I was selfish, because I wanted or needed anything. Tonight, as I was talking to Bishop Campbell, my mind was spinning with all kinds of false beliefs and thoughts that were just wrong.

I was panicking and trying to calm myself down. That didn't work, so I called BJ. I started to tell him what was bothering me, but then instead this new definition of unselfish came to my mind. I knew it was pure truth. It was a definition I could work with, because all of these years I have believed I was selfish if I ate, slept, wanted to be loved, stood up for myself, talked about me, etc.

With this new definition, all of those things actually fit into what the Lord wants for me, thus I was unselfish.

I believe I found a new truth that I can live by. And the truth will set me free. It IS setting me free.

  1. I think that's a great definition. I think if you live by that definition you won't go astray.
