Are you so consumed with pride that you fail to help others, because after all, shouldn't the world revolve around you and your concerns? This self love will create divisions and block the work of God. God designed the church to be an interdependent body of people, not a group of self-sufficient and self-contained individuals. Will you allow God to melt and soften your heart, so that you will sacrificially love Jesus and others?
