I hope you never become a very selfish person. Everybody is selfish once in a while, but some people stay that way all the time. They only want things for themselves. And they don’t care who they hurt to get those things. I’d like to show you 3 bad things selfish people do because I hope you don’t ever wanna be like that. OK? Good, keep reading…
Selfish people lie. They have to lie to make themselves look and feel better than everybody around them. And they spread lies about other people to try and make those other people look bad to their friends. Then they get so used to lying they can hardly do anything but lie. It’s a terrible thing. Don’t be a liar.
Selfish people steal. Since they only think of themselves, they take what others work hard to get. The Bible says they fill their houses with other people’s things. And they don’t care how much it hurts those other people. What matters most to them is getting and having more than everybody else. Don’t be a thief.
Selfish people kill. Of course, this is the worst thing. You might wonder how a person could kill another person because you can’t imagine doing that. Right? They can do it because they don’t care about anybody but themselves. I’m sure you’ve heard about killers going into schools and shooting people. Well, those people are blind. I don’t mean their eyes can’t see. I mean their hearts can’t see…they can’t see anything but their own need for attention. And they don’t care who they destroy to get it. Don’t be a killer.
Selfish people don’t understand where their selfish ways will take them. Selfishness leads to being alone…forever. And when I say alone, I mean never seeing anybody ever again. And never ever having another chance to make things right. And never knowing love…ever.
Don’t be selfish.
And here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
The bad things selfish people do
Can take their lives away.
Yes, when you least expect it to,
Your life could end one day,
And when it does where will you go?
Or do you even care?
I hope you’d want to be with God.
I’d love to see you there.
