“He said to him again, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love Me?’ He said to Him, ‘Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.’ He said to him, ‘Shepherd My sheep’” (John 21:16).

Whether it’s beating ourselves up over past failures or thinking more of ourselves than we ought because of worldly successes, Satan has a unique way of keeping us preoccupied with ourselves. The only remedy for getting over one’s self is a life committed to the service of others. Tending to and feeding those closest to the heart of Jesus — the broken, the marginalized, the disenfranchised – and being an advocate for those that have no voice is the most telling outward expression of our love for Christ.
