Self-pity is a plague upon the Church, and it is manifest in two ways: It cause one to feel like all is against him, and it causes one to feel like he is doing everything alone.
  How the eternal work of Jesus is hindered by people with a rubberneck, who look at what others are not doing and then maintain, “I’m doing all the work; I’m paying all the bills; I’m doing all the praying.” God pity them.
  Dare you, dare I even once feel we’re doing too much for Jesus? Impossible! I can never do too much! I can never give too much. I can never pray too much.
  Dear people, there’s a cure for this sickness. Make it a regular habit to kneel at the foot of the cross. As you are kneeling there, think how much He suffered for you. All friends forsook Him and fled. No man ever suffered like Jesus.
  Can you now look into His marred face and say, “Jesus, I’m doing too much for You?” If you can, you need to get saved. The cross demands our all. I’m afraid some have counted the cost and, like the rich young ruler, “went away sad.” It’s not too late! Take up your cross again and forsaking ALL, Give Him Everything-- FOLLOW HIM ONLY!
