How selfish can I be? How self absorbed and concerned are we when home repairs and animal urine get us off track while a more serious matter is worth our attention? Granted the series of events that happened to us this weekend at any other time would be worth some aggravation and I am sparring you quite a few details. It was odd how one thing would pop up, only for another, and another, and another. But through it all, I had to keep reminding myself how silly these things were compared to my cousins situation. I had to snap myself back into reality and prioritize my emotional responses correctly.
While its sad and disappointing to be confronted with my own selfish nature, I am glad that God has at least made it such that I feel convicted of this. The only thing worse than being self absorbed is being self absorbed and naive to your own wretchedness. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. That song practically narrates my life.
