We’re all selfish.
The number one priority can easily be yours truly, especially for us single folks.

- The first will be last.
- He who wants to be first must be a servant.
- It takes the faith of a child to get into heaven.
None of these truths can be lived out with a selfish attitude. (And none of this is possible without the Holy Spirit.)
Maybe we all need to go into Selfishness Anonymous.
It couldn’t hurt, right?
