The More You are Given

The more you are given, the more you expect.

The more you make, the more you spend.

The more power you have, the more power you want.

The more control you think you have, the more obsessive you become.

The more pride you take in your work, the more respect you demand.

The more egocentric you are, the more you will only see your side.

The more you dwell on your self and your own problems, the more pity you will desire.

Matthew 19:23-24 Jesus said to his disciples:
“Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich
to enter the Kingdom of heaven.
Again I say to you,
it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle
than for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God.”

Instead of loving yourself today; love someone else – just because it will take your mind off of YOU.
