Selfless - Chapel

1 – Introduction – today we’ll talk about being selfless.   That’s the direct opposite of being selfish or having a “Me First” attitude.  Selfless people seek the best for others, before themselves.

2 – Read the text – Romans 12:3-5

  • Every man among us.
    • Don’t overestimate your importance.
    • Think with sober judgment.
    • God has given each of us a place on this team.
  • Your body is made up of many parts, but it is one body.  Each part has a particular function.  Each part does what it alone can do.
  • We are many in Christ and in this team, but we are one.
    • When one succeeds, we all benefit.
    • When one fails, we all suffer.
    • When one achieves, we all achieve.
    • When one acts selfishly, we all lose.
    • When one is suspended, we as a team are lesser.
  • All or goals remain within our reach.
  • We can be as good and can achieve as highly as we want.
    • If each one serves his team and teammates selflessly.
    • If each one fulfills his role to its fullest.
    • If each one will put the team’s best interest ahead of any selfish pleasures or foolish behaviors.
  • We will be champions this year if we will choose to honor our team by being selfless.
