Get Out of ‘Selfie Mode”


‘Get out of ‘selfie mode.’

Everywhere you go, you’ll see someone taking a picture of themselves, a selfie. I’ll admit, I’ve done it. But some people take it too far. They take selfies when they’re eating their favorite food, or standing in front of a famous landmark.

Does it sound like we’re obsessed with ourselves? Are we solely thinking of ‘me’ all the time?

Philippians 2: 3 – “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”

The Bible clearly states to not merely look at our own personal interests, but to look at the interests of others.

Often people will build themselves up while tearing others down.

As a Christian, our pure desires and motives should be to give to others, not expecting to receive anything in return.

The opposite of selfishness is love. Love is focused on pleasing others, while acting in ‘selfie’ mode is pointed to satisfying the flesh.

See how long you can go without taking a ‘selfie.’ You may be surprised that the more you take your mind off of yourself and look to the needs of others, the longer you stay focused on what matters.

Serve others before serving yourself.
