Something BigNovember 16, 2008
I stole this from this from another blog, (http://jodyrlanders.com/) but I totally see myself in it.
“I have a savior complex, and since I fear my efforts won’t end in grandiosity, I’m tempted to not try at all. That’s pride. Jesus could of had a savior complex if anyone could, but he was humble enough to stop and heal one obscure man. Jesus was motivated by compassion, “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless…” (Matthew. 9:36)
When Jesus looked at this world, he wasn’t thinking about influence, he was responding in compassion. I want my motivation to be compassion and love, not a desire to do something big” (Amber Van Schooneveld)
