Death to SelfieJuly 2, 2017

Perhaps you remember the story about the two friends who met in the street. One looked sad and almost on the verge of tears. The other man said, “Hey my friend, how come you look like the whole world has caved in?” The sad fellow said, “Let me tell you. Three weeks ago, an uncle died and left me 50-thousand dollars.” “That's not bad at all...!” “Hold on, I'm just getting started. Two weeks ago, a cousin I never knew kicked-the-bucket and left me 95-thousand, tax-free to boot.” “Well, that's great! I'd like that.” “Last week, my grandfather passed away. I inherited almost a million.” “So why are you so glum?” “This week - nothing!” It’s safe to say that selfishness is alive and well in the 21st century. We can get so self-absorbed in our own lives and plans that we forget others, and we forget God. One evidence of this is the global phenomenon of selfies. All you have to do is point your phone your direction at a 45-degree angle, take a picture, edit it, post it, watch the thumbs-up and heart emoticons fly, feel a sense of reassurance, and then do it again. Selfies are the self-portraits of the digital age. But selfies also honestly reveal a culture that is starving for true connection – connection with real people and with a real God. Jesus said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it” (Matthew 16:24 and 25). In other words, “Death to selfie!” July 2 Just Call Me Jacob Genesis 23:22 to 32 July 9 Self-Focused Daniel 4:28 to 33 July 16 People-Focused 2 Timothy 2:1 to 2 July 23 God-Focused Isaiah 6:1 to 8 July 30 Heart-Focused Jeremiah 17:7 to 10
