Overcoming The Obstacle Of Selfishness

Living in this world, it can be easy to be focused on self. From selfies to social media, blogs, and self-help books; we can find ourselves thinking "it's all about me." Selfishness, however, is a major obstacle to thankfulness, but it can be overcome. When we understand what our true purpose for living is, our thankfulness to God can increase, and our selfishness will decrease. It is by living our life according to God's Word that we can overcome the obstacle of selfishness.

Scripture References: Hebrews 6:13-19

From Series: "Thankfulness Challenge"

Developing An Attitude Of Gratitude A reality of our fast moving, busy society is that being thankful has become a challenge. It usually takes a life-altering event or near-death experience to shake off the rust of ungratefulness. However, you don’t have to wait for something earth shattering to happen in order to be thankful. Being thankful is vital to your relationship with God and your relationship with others. The absence of thankfulness usually means discontentment and discouragement have made themselves comfortable in your heart. In order to rise above that, we must first realize that genuine and lasting thankfulness flows from a healthy soul. When your heart is right with God you will develop an attitude of gratitude that will overcome any obstacle and oppression you may face. The challenge is being willing to make changes to your perspective on life.
