“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” – Philippians 2:3 (NIV)
Why did I get stuck with the stupid-looking life preserver?
I’m out here in the sun, getting sweaty, giving up my time to invest in the lives of our youth from church, and they all get the cool zip-up life jackets while I get the one that looks like a throwaway prop from “Gilligan’s Island”. Not cool!
Oh yeah, and it chafes, too.
It’s times like these that I have to stop for a moment and do some soul-searching. I mean seriously, underneath all the fretting and justifications, what is really at the heart of my frustration?
