We have got to stop making everything about us.
I mean, why do we play the victim why things go poorly and act like a hero when things go well?
At the heart of it, I truly believe that a life that is completely focused on self is doomed for heartache.
Understand: One of the biggest things to understand and act on is that life is not about you.
This is such a good reminder.
Something changes for many of us after we leave elementary school. We try to make ourselves the hero or the victim of every story. Something goes wrong and we want to be the victim; something goes right and we want to make ourselves the hero. It doesn’t seem to matter which it is as long as we make it all about us. But if we make everything about us, it’ll never be about Jesus. What I’m coming to realize is we’re not the heroes and we’re not the victims of all the stories happening around us.
