The life of a Christian is a life of total selflessness. When we give we are not to give with a stingy heart, expecting to receive something in return. This is the same attitude Christ had for us. Christ didn’t come for us so that we could give Him something for His benefit. What can one give The King of kings that He doesn’t already possess? The Father Loves The Son and has placed everything in His hands.
Nothing exists that can ever refute this fact. This is why we are to only Love God back, through our words, our thoughts, and our actions towards His children.
And we pray:
Dear God, I pray that as I live my life as a Christian, as Your child, may I never have selfishness as a priority in my life. Help me to be selfless in all my ways, O Lord, so I may be an example of You to Your children. You set the standard first, O God, and I ask that You help me to walk in this standard. There is no way I can do it in my own actions or power; Fill me, Guide me, Lead me, Direct me, Teach me. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
