Illusion of Flying

If asked, I’d say

The most important things

In my life are

My relationships.

First,

With my Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.

Then family,

Friends

And so on.

However,

When I closely examine

My thoughts and actions,

I see something I’d rather deny.

Too often,

Far too often,

I’m at the top of that list.

Do I care more when others are hurting

Or when I am?

Do I expend my time and energy

To being a blessing

Or doing what makes me feel

Fulfilled and happy?

Do I plan my schedule

Around the needs of others

Or my own?

Unless I share in the joy of others…

Unless I weep when they weep…

Unless I seek to pour out my life

For the good of others…

I will only be fooling myself.

I will only experience

The illusion of flying.

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves (Romans 12:10, NIV).
