Full of Ourselves

As humans, it is our very nature to be selfish. We want everything done our way and on our time schedule.

We become wrapped up in “my world” that we don’t think of others. Our schedules are busy running hither and yon, we don’t have time to be bothered or inconvenienced. The world teaches to do whatever feels good, no matter who it hurts.

Pride keeps us from becoming a humble servant. We pursue everlasting joy in earthly things. We tend to place our hope in the things of this world. We were born with a sinful, selfish nature.

We are constantly searching for worldly pleasures. We are obsessed with getting more and having more than our neighbor. We are so busy “keeping up with the Joneses,” that we leave God out. God can’t fill us when we are already full of ourselves.
