Instead of life being all about me, life must be all about Jesus. And, as a channel of Jesus’ love and mercy, I cannot allow MYSELF to become clogged up with MY SELF.
Giving when we don’t even have much to give means that we are willing to secure someone else’s future before we secure our own; that we will put them in the lifeboat, while we stand on the sinking ship.
God’s love is transforming and pure. It is the kind of love that strips itself of its own rights, bends low and washes the feet of those who are to be served. This love, in honor, prefers others before self.
