How to Overcome Selfishness by Dealing with Worry

how to overcome selfishness by dealing with worry

And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:7 AMPC

As the scripture says, God’s peace is meant to make us content with who we are and what we have. When we aren’t filled with the peace God gives, we end up trying to make ourselves content, leading us to become self-consumed. When we choose to deal with the worry that God’s peace is meant to relieve, we are freed up from selfishness and can love God and others.

Why Is It Hard To Get Deep?

By digging down deep, we start the process toward having a faith in God that is not easily shaken. However, depth takes work. It is not a personality trait or a natural talent, but rather a skill that must be worked at and developed over time.
