That's a radical statement. My default mode is self-centered thinking. In a pinch, I look out for my own tail. It's just what I do. That's why it's so important to be part of a culture, like the one here at Nativity, where people are constantly and consistently giving of themselves.
I heard a new definition of selfishness the other day: it's not how highly you think of yourself, just how often you do. I think that's a pretty good way to put it; not comforting for me, but definitely pertinent. If thoughts create feelings which inspire action, I need to focus my thinking elsewhere. Tonight, I will pray for others, that Christ's light may shine in their lives, and for myself that I may have the presence of mind to see the Christlike behaviors of other Christians and that I have the courage to witness to those who do not know Him.
