“A great act of love liberates us from selfishness.” I was reflecting on the life of Jesus. He has completely emptied himself, and laid down his life for us, and this is the great act of love for humankind. Jesus spared no effort, was not attached to His life, so He was able to give it for all. This is the great lesson He has given us. I’ve been thinking: How selfish I am, often worried about “my life,” “my plans,” “my things,” I do not look around and do not see the situations that need me the most. Selfishness makes us sick, bitter, makes us abandon people, leaves our soul sick and away from God. Today, let us renounce all selfishness, learn from Jesus to strip ourselves and love without measure.
