Towards Selflessness

Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity. If you learn this art of being thoughtful, you will become more and more Christlike, for His heart was meek and always thought of others. - Mother Teresa

lost in self

We’re mostly lost in our thoughts, lost in our own world and constantly worrying about us. Even when we think of another’s well being or safety it’s often in relationship with our own needs. We’re essentially selfish…

christlike

Born animal-like it’s understandable that we’re selfish. However true reality, God’s essence resides inside us, ever leading us upwards and onwards. That compelling attraction wants us to think of others first, be thoughtful, be Christlike. which where the oft used phrase WWJD comes from. What would Jesus do? What would goodness do? What would love do, in this or any situation?

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM thoughtful of others.
