When you realize you can’t have what you want, you awaken to your real need…. Jesus. Even when you get what you want, you still won’t be satisfied, because God satisfies all our needs. Selfishness is a form of pride. One of the destructions of selfishness is that it causes spiritual separation, delusion, and awareness from the presence of God. Selfishness slowly can lead man down the beaten path of darkness, manipulation, and depression. This only leads to destruction. Fight to keep your mind on God.
