Take God seriously? Of course! Take God’s love seriously? You bet! Take sharing God’s love seriously? Absolutely! But take yourself seriously? Not so much! This may seem obvious, but it’s not. Too many people – even those striving to live faithfully – too often end up taking themselves more seriously than they do God. And the result is that they convince themselves everyone else should do the same as well – including God. Pretty soon, they develop a sense of entitlement, think they should receive special treatment and are convinced they are more important than everyone else. And that never works out well. In fact it’s often a disaster. So begin your life with God. Receive God’s gift of love, revel in it, be healed by it, experience how it transforms you, and then share it. When you do, you’ll discover what you’ve been looking for all along!
