James 4:13-17

James makes it pretty clear that nothing good comes out of selfish ambition. "For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice" (James 4:16). So I gave some thought to being selfish and what exactly selfishness is. I came up with this: Selfishness = putting me before everything and everyone, including God.

So this week I'm committing to hit my selfishness head on. I'm going to intentionally step back into that second place spot and put others around me first. How about joining me? Who you can put first this week--in your home, at work, at school, at church? Tami W.

Hello everyone! Apologies for the late blog entries & emails the past few days. We're having a few technical difficulties that we're working on. Thanks for your patience! We still want to hear your comments, so post away.

Without knowing exactly who I'll be interacting with this week, I'll simply state that I'll do my best to put myself in back in favor or someone else in any given situation in which I find myself.

About Me

Hi, my name is Tami Weissert, the P4 facilitator and the "voice" behind the blogs. I'm passionate about helping people grow spiritually and actively encourage Bible engagement through conference speaking and writing. I also served as co-host of the Back to the Bible radio program for over 8 years. A little about me. I'm married to Jeff, and we love scuba diving, playing with our 3 dachshunds and going to Husker football games. I also love growing orchids, singing and Diet Pepsi. I hope you'll join in the conversation as we read the Bible and grow together.

About My Blog

I'm passionate about engaging God's Word! And my blog is about just that--giving you opportunities to receive, reflect on and respond to Scripture. Each day you'll find a short passage as well as thoughts, challenges and application questions for you to think about and respond to. I look forward to interacting with you and learning together, so post comments as often as you'd like. You can even sign up to get the blogs delivered to your inbox each day!
