I’ve Been Bitten By The ME!

ME Has MY Eyes!

ME is an epidemic that’s worldwide.  At first, the ME bug is sweet and gives the infected that warm and fuzzy feeling all over, but it soon turns to bitterness and the pain of its bite runs deep.

Perhaps if decisions were made by “us” in place of “me”, relationships would be long-lasting in the home and in the congregations.  It seems our world is more concerned with the feel good moments than it is for truth and walking in it.  We think only of right now but give little regard to the tomorrows.  Abundant life is not about exotic and intoxicating feelings, though those can be a healthy result at times, it’s about the lasting joy that comes when truth reigns and love conquers through the sunshine and through the storms.  ME cannot weather the storms.  ME is more likely to cause them.

We can’t find anything of lasting value if we live with a drive-through mentality.  No give-me-nows will stand the test of time, only those who choose the fight-for-us will last.

How bad has the ME bug spread across our world?  Well, how many of you just thought about the other person, friend, family member, or spouse, that need to read this?  After all, it would make your life easier if they would.

We all have the ME virus influencing our thoughts, but we don’t have to let it mutate.  We can take the vaccination called “US”.  However, there is a disclaimer: Before you take US, be sure you want the lasting impact it may have.  US is a synonym for “Together-Tomorrow”.  If Together-Tomorrow is the result you’re looking for, then US is certainly for you.

There are a couple of side effects with the US vaccination.  The short-term side effects can cause a little discomfort throughout the body as the ME is isolate and US breaks down the unhealthy composites that ME built as connection barriers. Connection barriers stop the flow of healthy thoughts and eventually cut off circulation to the heart, causing a hardening. This hardening is completely reversible.  The long-term side effects of the US vaccine are a healthy mind and intimate connections with others.  Always remember, US is not a give-me-now drive-through, US is a fight-for-us journey.  Give the US vaccine time to work

There is one more thing you need to know before taking US, it must be taken daily and its healing properties only work in the congregations after it has been administered in the home first.

ME may have MY eyes, but it doesn’t have to have my heart.

    Well stated Shannan. Greater consideration can always be given to what can be accomplished working as “us,” “we,” or “one” rather than “me.”

    Warm Regards,

    Right on the money! Great blog.I have been frustrated with the “me” mentality for quite some time. If everyone poured their life into others, the world would be a brighter place.

      Yeah, “me” is always in my way :\ It’s not all that hard. If one person would be kind to one person the whole world would become a kinder place.
