Put others first.
Think back to a time when you did something that was selfish. Come on, we’ve all been there! Maybe yours was a minor offense, something that didn’t seem like that big of a deal. Or maybe it was a little more obvious, something that you knew was a total jerk move while you were doing it—but you did it anyway. The truth is that even when you don’t realize you’re doing it, you evaluate almost every decision by asking yourself the question: “How does this affect me?” But what we all seem to forget is that even when we’re making decisions based on what’s best for us, we are rarely the only person being affected.
As we check back in with Paul this week, he’ll give us some guidance on how we can change our thinking to start considering others before ourselves. And when we do, we’ll find that it’s not just the lives of others that will be impacted—our lives will be changed as well.
