Ray Lammie’s Thought for Today

This is so good I had to share his insight on pain.

Februrary 19, 2012
The person who makes your day painful just might be experiencing great pain themselves. The external pain and aggravation they give off is probably nothing compared with the mental, emotional or physical burden they may be carrying around internally.

We don’t see the cause, but we do witness the effect. The cause is not Rayour concern; however, getting away from that “barking and biting big dog” is. We rarely look at others in the same way as we look at ourselves. Inside the people around us are life’s problems, pain, worries, disappointments as well as joy, love, peace and happiness…pretty much just like us.

The big difference is how it is outwardly projected. –RL

The Bible talks more about others than it does self. It tells us to die to self. To have ourselves on our minds excessively is selfish. It is important to do things for yourself, value yourself, make sure you are whole & healthy. I think it is easy to fall into that selfish trap & loose sight of being “others” minded.

1st Timothy 5:6 Amplified Bible

6) Whereas she/he who lives in pleasure and self-gratification [giving
herself/himself up to luxury and self-indulgence] is dead even while she [still] lives.

God help us all with the selfish desires we all struggle with, Amen!
