And we’re back from a little 3 day hiatus!

Ok, so I must hear how things went for you these last 3 days of our ‘Think of Others First’ Challenge! Please share a little at the bottom in the comments section.

Here are a few of my thoughts; 1) I’m very selfish, 2) As a Christian, why is living with a mind for others NOT my norm? You see, to live like Christ, we not only live this way toward our closest relationships (Eph 5:25), but also toward those do all kinds of evil against us (Luke 6:28). I think we could go on and on about how we fall short in this area, but let’s move on.

I was talking with an older friend of mine a couple days ago, who was opening up to me about his marriage.

“Costa, I almost lost my marriage because I was so selfish!” Then, pointing to the Bible in front of him, “it was feeding my mind with this, that saved me.”

There was a lot of good that came out of focusing on this for 7 days! At the end of the day, spending time with God, and in His Word is what cures us of our incredibly selfish ways.

So, maybe we’ll start a new challenge for the next 7 days! How about we make it a point to spend time with God and in His Word at some point during each day?

Who’s with me?

P.S. Don’t forget I want to hear some stories from this  last week!

  1. I’m so with you Costa!! I spent some time getting in contact with people, seeing how things were going, checking up on them praying for them. Even when I really didn’t want to because I felt I had too much going on. All my stuff still got done, and I was able to help some people out! I donated some money to a great cause, and I really didn’t want to. I have some money saved, and I feel like I shouldn’t touch it, so I was going to check my account to see if I really could afford it (I knew I had enough, but by how much “enough” I was unsure) So I just put my faith in God, that my bank account will find it’s way back to where it was, and I was able to contribute to a friends cause. Thanks for that challenge! Loving the new challenge!! Luckily, I’ll be at a Christian Conference for college students ALL weekend, so I’ll have a pretty good start! You have a great heart, Costa! Love that you are sharing it, and being honest about some rough patches, and ways you can do better!

  2. BASIC Conference!!

    And yeah, they were. I really didn’t want to text someone at one point, thought it would be pointless. Ended up turning the persons day around into a much better direction! 🙂
