The older I get, the more aware I’ve become of just how often I make it all about me. When I’m angry and irritated, it’s probably because my plans, wishes, and desires didn’t play out the way I envisioned. When someone doesn’t like my idea, it’s easy to stop caring about the end result.
The fact is I’m not as important or as awesome as I think. It’s not about me. It’s about others. It’s about Him. He must increase and I must decrease.
