Tozer: self-love

Thursday, October 5, 2017
    For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
    —Romans 8:5-6 (KJV)
    The labor of self-love is a heavy one indeed. Think for yourself whether much of your sorrow has not arisen from someone speaking slightingly of you. As long as you set yourself up as a little god to which you must be loyal, there will be those who delight to offer affront to your idol. How can you hope to find inward peace?
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 105 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:5-6; Matt. 5:11-12; Rom. 16:17-18; Phil. 3:18-19; 1 Tim. 6:3-5; 1 Pet. 2:23
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, remove all “gods” from my heart and take up residence there Yourself.
