He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

Selfish & Fickle

Recently when struggling with God about something that I didn’t think was fair, I felt as if the Holy Spirit rebuked me.  He challenged my thinking which was focused on me, how I felt and what I wanted. 

It’s hard, if not impossible, to love someone else when I put myself first.  When I make my feelings the measuring rod by which I determine if someone is right or wrong or good or bad, they will always fall short in my estimation. 

That doesn’t even take into account the fickleness of my feelings.  I need to remember God’s counsel that the heart is deceitfully wicked above all things.

So true, the heart is deceitful and wicked. I think we bring many problems on ourselves when we put ourselves first. But we continue doing it anyway.
