"'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your
soul, and with all your mind.'  This is the greatest and first commandment.
And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'  On
these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."  ~Matthew

We can work at overcoming ourselves, our selfish desires and our
self-centeredness.  This can never be fully accomplished.  We can never
become entirely unselfish.  But we can come to realize that we are not at
the center of the universe and that everything does not revolve around us at
the center.  I am only one cell in a vast network of human cells.  I can at
least make the effort to conquer the self-life and seek daily to obtain more
and more of this self-conquest.  "The one who overcomes himself is greater
than the one who conquers a city."

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may strive to overcome my selfishness.  I pray that I may
achieve the right perspective of my position in the world.

have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
