Just One Egg

A codfish lays ten thousand eggs and says not a word. But the hen lays just one egg and cackles all day to advertise her incredible accomplishment! We’re like the hen in our self-admiration and self-absorption. One evidence is how we use our smart phones, emails, Facebook, Facetime, Skype, etc.: We download and upload images of ourselves; we text and post messages about ourselves; and we chat back and forth about ourselves. Just one egg: SELF. Self-centeredness partakes of Lucifer’s selfishness and leads to destruction (Isaiah 14:12-16). We must die to self—i.e., be selfless, emulating Christ’s “self-emptying” act that resulted in His sacrificing His life for us (Philippians 2:5-8).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
