Consumed

Today's reading: 1 Kings 21: 1-16

For the last week or so, we've spent a good amount of time on passages dealing with king Ahab, and what we repeatedly see is that Ahab is consumed with himself--his position, his happiness, his comfort. Even though he's absolutely aware of God, his continued choice is to elevate himself and his wants above God. And boy, he certainly provides us with an accurate look at selfish thinking and living.

What did you observe from Ahab's example about the negative impact of selfishness? Putting our interests first is a constant temptation. So what helps you keep the right perspective, and yourself in the right position, with God? Tami

God Himself helps me keep the right perspective. I frequently seem to find myself in a position where I have to be dependent on Him. The more I find myself in that position the more I see that it is not a bad place to be. He knows me, He cares for me and He has always sustained me. I trust and have faith in Him.

As we're going to find out in the passage to come, a selfish mindset doesn't just affect others, but in the long run, it'll come back to affect us, as well.
