A Daily Devotion for Monday, April 3
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
The challenge to live selflessly is not to be taken lightly. It is not easy for me, at least. Because Jesus is the perfect example of living selflessly, we have our model and our mentor. But it is so easy for me to get caught up in the day-to-day world, and to find myself with thoughts turned inward, on trivial selfish issues. It is never too late to do better, as long as I live on this earth, with the Holy Spirit as my guide.
Holy Lord, today help me to keep my attention and my energy focused on others, and not myself. Help me to be selfless. Amen
