sjrlim19 What is fun for me? What is happy for me? What is comfortable for me? What will benefit me? What is not stressful for me?
I do believe in Christian Hedonism. Meaning, the glory of God and the ultimate benefit of man are one and the same. but let it not be understood that our goal is our benefit. Once that the goal is our benefit, the glory of God is put out of the picture. The goal is the glory of God and our benefitting from that flows naturally.
When we focus on our wants and our comforts and we value it more than anything else, it brings about greater sins because we fail to humble ourselves to God and we fail to surrender to His will and we fail to deny ourselves and obey.
Many, if not all sins in the bible are done out of selfish desires. And when our will, those that are contrary to God's will, is done, we get what we wanted, a choice that was not seen in the bigger picture. therefore, the benefit of our choice is very fleeting and small and the consequences are great and impacting. #selfishness
