What’s it look like to die every day? Well, dying to yourself today may mean spending your lunch hour serving food to the homeless at the shelter down the street from your office. It may mean the next time you talk to your neighbor, instead of playing it safe and keeping comfortable you bring Jesus into the conversation. Dying to yourself may mean changing your vacation plans, and instead of taking your kids to Disney this year, you take them to the Dominican Republic and volunteer in the feeding centers where hundreds of kids come each day for their only meal. Dying to yourself may mean walking by that empty room in your house and asking God if there is an orphan child in another country that should be sleeping in that bed. Dying to yourself may mean you selflessly love a spouse that has cheated on out of the marriage you so desperately wanted.

Kyle Idleman, "Not a Fan" (p. 169)
