We’re emotional creatures,
Living from moment to moment,
Making choices based on how we feel,
Putting ourselves first and justifying the means to that end.
Easier to agree to what we want than sacrifice for the sake of others.
And sometimes being the “good guy” puts us at a disadvantage.
Telling the truth hurts: either them, us or both.
Doing the right thing means we miss out or lose.
Being selfless leads to sacrificing when we don’t have to.
Taking the punches and not retaliating leaves us bruised and broken.
When our right comes before considering others,
Who then can we trust?
Who then can we rely on?
“In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you”
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
~Matthew 7 – NASB
