An Admonishment To Look Outward

A practical & personal admonishment this morning:

“When the healthy pursuit of self-interest & self-realization turns into self-absorption, other people can lose their intrinsic value in our eyes and become mere means to the fulfillment of our needs and desires.” ~ P.M. Forni
~~~
Don’t let that be us as Christians – it’s ugly.
We have to distinguish ourselves from the rest for others to recognize we have something they may not. Something they want. 
 
And we have to remember that we cannot control people or how they treat us, but we absolutely can control how we react. And whether we allow it to define us.
 
Much love y’all & much more reaching outside ourselves,
 
Bonnie ❤
