It’s easy to be selfish. It really is. It is difficult to think of a greater purpose. It’s hard to think of others first. It’s hard to focus on obedience rather than self. Yet the hardest tasks in this life always reap the greatest reward. When we focus on something great we see our life poured into something we could have never imagine. God does things we wouldn’t have dreamed. When we focus on others, we find joy and fulfillment that we could not have imagined. When we focus on being obedient we see changes in our life, our heart, out DNA that can only be explained by the work of God on our heart.
It’s hard to be more selfless. The reward is worth it though. The reward is the life he planned for you. The reward is finding the place, purpose, and calling he has had for you since before you were born. It’s work. But it’s worth it.
