HIDDEN SELFISHNESS

When you have served on ministries, helped your family members, been there every time a friend needed you, been there when who ever called, worked, and served, and worked, and served until you are so tierd and have nothing left but blood, sweat, and tears, IT NEVER WAS ABOUT GOD OR THE PEOPLE YOU WERE SERVING, IT WAS ALL ABOUT YOU!
SOME PEOPLE NEED TO DO ALL, AND BE ALL, JUST TO FEEL IMPORTANT , NOTICED OR SEEN. THEY GET WRAPPED UP IN A WHOLE BUNCH OF THINGS THAT THEY WERE NEVER EVEN CALLED TO, SO THEY CAN FEEL A SENCE OF WORTH. SOMETIMES PEOPLE MISTAKE THESE PEOPLE FOR BEING “SOLD OUT FOR CHRIST” AND THEY STRIVE TO BE LIKE THEM. THE TRUTH IS, THEY ARE SOLD OUT TO THEMSELVES AND THAT FEELING OF BEING SPECIAL IN THE EYES OF MAN. YOUR SENCE OF WORTH NEEDS TO COME FROM THE FACT THAT GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE HIS. YOU DID NOTHING TO EARN THAT, AND YOU CAN NEVER REPAY HIM.
Some have argued that this is just being “burned out” when God has called you to do many things. I know that there is such a thing, this is true. so, guess what,  I am not referring to them! This is for that person who is always talking about what they are doing for everyone, to everyone, while they seek praise and awards on earth. It takes a very mature Christian (submitted to the Holy Spirits) to even admit that they have this issue. If they are at least willing to receive that wisdom from Him, then maybe they can start to change this unseen by many selfish pattern.
