The Me-Monster

May 07th 2010

I love Brian Regan.  He makes me laugh and even occasionally sneaks in a bit of conviction.  Watch this video (thanks to the Tobers) and think back to the last time the me-monster attacked.

What is it about the me-monster inside of us that has this incredible drive to out-do the person next to us? There is a phrase in the Bible that describes the pathway to abundant life — we need to die to self. What does that look like at a dinner party? While we are standing in line at a grocery store, in back of the little old lady who is paying in pennies? While we are catching up with old friends? When we are concerned about getting the credit due us? When is the last time the me-monster attacked your life?
