Dying to Self - Author Unknown (to me)

Hat tip to Dr. E.N.

[This is a very good examination of conscience]





When you are forgotten or neglected but you don't hurt with insult, and your heart is happy,

THAT IS DYING TO SELF.

When your advice is disregarded, your opinions ridiculed, and you refuse to let anger rise in your heart, and take it all in patient, loving silence,

THAT IS DYING TO SELF.

When you lovingly and patiently bear disorder, irregularity, unpunctuality, and annoyance ... and endure it as Jesus endured it,

THAT IS DYING TO SELF.

When you never care to refer to yourself in conversation or record your own good works, or itch for praise after an accomplishment; when you can truly love to be unknown,

THAT IS DYING TO SELF.

When you can see your neighbor prosper and can honestly rejoice with him, and feel no envy even though your needs are greater,

THAT IS DYING TO SELF.

When you are content with any food, any offering, any raiment, any climate, any society,

THAT IS DYING TO SELF.

When you can take correction; when you can humbly submit inwardly as well as outwardly, with no rebellion or resentment rising up within your heart,

THAT IS DYING TO SELF.

As well you know - no I am not. There is much to be mortified but somehow I believe I am on the right path. You can still help me ... :-)
