A Selfless Mind to Work

When we fail to pray, care for, and serve the body, we are acting selfishly. When we grumble and complain we poison the minds of others. When we fail to give willingly, generously, and cheerfully, we hurt our brothers and sisters in Christ; we jeopardize the mission we have been called to fulfill. Unless we embrace the vision God has given us as a church and have a mind to work selflessly, we undermine the work God is doing.

The Mile Between Knowing and Doing

Perhaps the most difficult temptation for the aspiring theologian is pride. We consider ourselves the authority that our friends and family should listen to on all matters. We struggle to treat others kindly when they have said or done something incorrectly. We act like incorrect knowledge of God is a personal offense against us, and we make ourselves the center of the universe.
