Read, consider and weigh in on today's passage with Back to the Bible author and speaker, Tami Weissert

 

"All About Me" Living

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 3:1-25

Abner provides us with a pretty good example of self-absorbed thinking and living. We've gleaned a little information about him prior to today's passage, but here in 2 Samuel 3 we get an up close and personal look at this man's sinful attitudes and ways. The more I read, the more my feelings of dislike for Abner grew. I jotted down the following things I noticed about Abner: arrogant, bully, powerful and power hungry, people user, disrespectful of others, answers to no one, thinks highly of himself. What a picture of how power and position can spiral out of control when we've made ourselves, and our goals and personal desires, our number one priority rather than living to follow and serve God.

When are you most susceptible to self-centered thinking and acting? How does being in God's Word, praying, having friendships with other believers and being involved in church help you combat the temptation to elevate your interests and wants above all else? Tami
