Billy Graham Daily Devotional Saturday July 8, 2017

Topic: Released From Selfishness

Key Verse: He must increase, but I must decrease. – John 3:30

MESSAGE: Self-centeredness is the basic cause of much of our distress in life. Hypochondria, a mental disorder which is accompanied by melancholy and depression, is often caused by self-pity and self-centeredness.

Most of us suffer from spiritual nearsightedness. Our interests, our loves, and our energies are too often focused upon ourselves. Jesus underscored the fact that His disciples were to live outflowingly rather than selfishly.

Billy Graham Daily Devotional: Energy Under Control

To the rich young ruler He said, “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven” (Matthew 19:21).

It wasn’t the giving away of his goods that Jesus demanded, particularly, but that he be released from selfishness, and its devastating effect on his personality and life.

What does being selfless look like? Read this article on dying to self.

Prayer for the day: Teach me to so completely open my heart to You that there will be no room for self. Cleanse me, Lord, of all selfish thoughts and deeds.

This daily devotional was written by Billy Graham, Founder Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
