How often in our lifetime do we encounter people who suffer from narcissism or visions of grandeur or even the ‘holier than thou’ syndrome. This has been said of me because of my complete surrendering of my life to God.
Then there are those who constantly think of others with care and compassion; who put the needs and feelings of others before their own; whose very existence is spent in the service of others.
The thing is, our world is in the grip of a virus that is striking people down mercilessly not stopping to differentiate between royalty and the commoner, the rich and the poor, the young and the old; the homeless and the mansion dwellers; or people like the above .
We, the world, are in what is being called a silent war, and we are in it together. Altogether. All together.
This virus has been named many things by many people but someone recently dubbed it ‘the great equalizer‘ I hope and pray that we will never again have to be reminded to think of our world as one, no matter our life status, creed, or culture. Our world.
Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. John 13:16
Mathew 5: 11.
More to the point: Acts 10:34, Romans 2:11, Proverbs 22:2
Whoever suggested you are narcissistic is WAY off base. I know you to be humble, caring, and devoted.
Thank you, Roger. Perhaps I didn’t word that first paragraph properly; it’s the ‘holier than thou’ that was directed at me once.
