Just about e everyone I know is tuned into WIIFM. It is the most difficult channel to tune away from. All people are tuned into it. The channel is What’s in it for me! it is extremely hard, or it seems to be, to get onto – How can I serve others. People tend to fight for their own survival and promotion. Everything is ME ME ME. Christ came to give us life, and that life, abundantly. To live for yourself is to live limited. To live small! If you really get the fact that you can do anything, and that Christ gave you everything, then your needs to do everything for yourself will die.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
People hold on to what they have with everything they have, simply because they don’t have more than enough. Even heavier than that is the fact that our possessions give us the things we really need, like security, trust, peace, love, hope and even self worth. If you find all of these in Christ, firstly your struggle to find it will stop and secondly you will live abundantly. This is how people get tuned into giving and living to serve others!
What do you live for. What do you need to possess to have Security, etc?
