Selfless

Written by Dallas Pepper on March 7th, 2016.

I saw this photo on Facebook the other day.
I have other intentions for my year.

2016 will be a selfless year.
My time will be invested in others.
On improving the world.
I want to be broken bread and poured out wine.
I don't want to be a container.
I want to be a spring.
A bucket free to be sent to fetch the living water that flows from heaven.
A light reflecting Jesus Christ.
We (as a society) are always so focus on ourselves. When all we do is take in and become stagnant we become like the dead sea. Only bodies of water that flow contain life. Yes, there is a time to take care of ourselves and being selfless and helping others doesn't always look the way others think it might. But our individualistic society has long passed the extreme of self-focus. As a Christian, I'm called to a different path.
