The result of too much I, me and my in our eye

Thinking about I, me and my too much leads to an “I think” way of life.

The “rich man” of Luke 12:31-21 thought he could take it easy after taking care of himself.

He thought wrong!

His body was his, his choices were his, and his one life to live was his – but his soul paid the price of his myopic thinking.

The “I think” way of life often takes the “captain’s hat” off of truth and places it on our fickle head. The obvious problem with that course of thought is our ship will sink every time. That’s because the aforementioned hat belongs to Jesus. If we keep our eyes on him, we’ll find a lot less of I, me and my in our eye.

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.” (Hebrews 2:9-10 NKJV)
