Paul called it his flesh or sinful nature. I like to call it the Me-Monster.
It rises with that familiar desire to be satisfied, to feel safe and protected. That unsettled feeling lodges somewhere between the gut and your shoulders and suddenly, without warning, the Me-Monster has taken over.
It’s not a conscious decision. It’s a compulsion, a survival mechanism. But it may’ve just alienated a room full of people.
Here’s how you can diffuse the Me-Monster in your family this Thanksgiving – even if it’s you.
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.” – Philippians 2:3-4
