Looking After Ourselves

August 6, 2014

“Because we live with imperfect people, we assume that total trust would equal suicide.  Devoting priority energy to looking after ourselves seems necessary and, therefore, moral.  Our sinful commitment to looking after ourselves is always a more serious problem than the wounds we suffer at the hands of others.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Understanding Who You Are, Page 10

Questions for Reflection:

• Do you agree that devoting priority energy to looking after yourself is a more serious problem than the wounds you suffer at the hands of others?

• How does following Jesus both collide with your self-protection and provide hope for transformation?
