It's Not About Self, But About Selflessness

So, recently the word "selfie" was added to the dictionary. I only know this because I heard it on the radio the other morning, and yes, I rolled my eyes. (Forgive me if this is old news to you.) 
 
So much in society now is about self. We log in to Facebook or Twitter to see how many people "like" our status, our pictures, our comments. We can watch our blogs and see how many people from all over the world are reading our words. It can get exciting or discouraging, depending on how you look at it. 
 
But we should not let ourselves be defined by our "selfie", our "likes" or... the lack there of.  Instead, the Lord has commanded us in John 15 to love one another as He first loved us.  
 
Simply put, Jesus was not about self, but was about selflessness.  I can't help but wonder how many times I have walked away from doing the will of the Lord because I was too caught up in self. 
 
More of you, Lord Jesus, and less of me.
