Ego Check

“There Is No Indispensable Man”
Sometime when you’re feeling important;
Sometime when your ego’s in bloom
Sometime when you take it for granted
You’re the best qualified in the room,
Sometime when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how they humble your soul;

Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining
Is a measure of how you will be missed.

You can splash all you wish when you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop and you’ll find that in no time
It looks quite the same as before.

The moral of this quaint example
Is do just the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself but remember,
There’s no indispensable man.

Saxon N. White Kessinger, Copyright 1959

If you want to find how great you are, put your finger down in a pool of water, or a bucket of water, then pull your finger out and try to find where you put your finger. You’re nothing. God can do without you, He can do without me, but we can’t do without Him. We’ve got to have Him, for He is Life, and He alone. Not to know His Book, not to know this, or know that, or know the creed. “But to know Him is Life,” know Him as the Person, Christ in you, the Word made flesh in you. That’s knowing Him. When He, you and He, became, becomes one, like I said last night in The Super Sign. He has got to come in you. You! God and man must come one. You’re conscious of your littleness.

    Simple, yet powerful enough to make a good change, if read, and acted upon. Thanks for the post.

      Laodicea is a perfect breeding ground for one to become egocentric.
