In a popular Seinfeld scene, there is this poignant interchange between Jerry and Elaine.
Jerry: “Is this about me?”
Jerry: “Then I’ve lost interest.”
And that is the problem for most of us. If something is not about us, we aren’t interested. But recovery takes us down a different path – one that values others and sacrifices our own self-interests for the sake of those we say we love.
Today, chart a different path. Put someone else’s needs ahead of your own.
Recovery Step: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves” (Philippians 2:3).
