To Be or Not To Be a Diva: Selflessness

My thoughts on Divas, Christianity, Women and Girls:

I've went over it from every angle... a Diva thinks of herself, a Christian does not.  Self is crucified.  But, yet, there's more.  There's this aspect of always growing in the areas of our faith that matter most to God.  It reminds me of 2 Peter 1:5-8

"Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."

I love that.  If the above qualities are yours and are increasing, you will be useful and fruitful in the knowledge of Jesus.  Wow.  Somehow, some way, let our Blossoms be planted and growing in the above qualities.  The selfishness is crucified with the flesh so the beautiful character traits that please our Lord can grow and increase.  Oh, my dream for our Blossoms.  I'm thankful that He's supplied grace for us to train them in this way.
