I added the category of “Self” to Jen Hatmaker’s 7 because I felt like the point of any fast is to become more SELFless. While it is less of a tangible area, I am hoping that in my own life, serving others will be one way that I can rid myself of SELF.

Here’s a passage I LOVE! I don’t think this passage is just talking about money, but so much more.

Luke 6:38

New International Version (NIV)

38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

Will you join us in linking up your stories about ridding yourself of SELF by serving and giving to others?

Thanks so much for commenting and joining the readership here.  My goal is to keep this blog and the comment threads positive and helpful; therefore, when moderating your comments, I use the following passage as a guideline.

Ephesians 4:29, 31-32 (MSG)

29 Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift. 31-32 Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.
