How self-sabotaging is my selfishness, when I look but do not see the suffering of others. Too seldom do I notice the courage of those who wake up each day and do their best with painful circumstances. Today I will be more alert to the suffering of others. It is hard to face in ourselves the trait of self-centeredness. But in facing it we are saved from it. The only way to truly love ourselves is to open our hearts to each other.
Generosity toward others is an act of self-interest,for in loving others I attract more love. May no one's suffering be meaningless to me, that I might know the meaning of life. Free me from a selfish heart. Amen.
