It’s not All About U!


Today I was in Chic-Fil-A and the guy that was helping me was talking to me about my Diet Dr. Pepper. The girl working the register right beside him said…

What did you ask me?

And he replied…

“I was just talking to him (pointing to me)”

“OK” she replied

Then he added…

“By The way… its not all about you.”

“I know” She said with a flip of her pony tail and a smile… an vain attempt to cover up her embarrassment.

I think this is a great reminder for all of us.

Just think…

How many relational problems would we avoid if we would just remember it’s not all about us?

How many bad decisions would we avoid making if we would just remember it’s not all about us?

How many tough, disheartening, circumstances would we avoid if we would just remember it’s not all about us?

How many problems would we actually come up with a solution for if we would just remember it’s not all about us?

The answer?

Most… if not all.

It is so easy to fall into the “it’s all about me” mentality and the thing is when it happens…

we generally do not even know we are there…

and once we figure it out its too late for we have already caused damage that we never intended to cause.

It’s never all about you…

unless of course you’re Jesus

And when we make it all about Jesus our “all about us” falls by the wayside and life and healing and joy and peace and good and resurrection not only becomes a part of our existence today…

it is also what we will leave in the wake of our movements.
