Many are walking around this Planet {especially in Hollywood & in the gym} overly self-involved focusing MORE on their outer shell then the prosperity of their Soul/Spirit. They will look at themselves ten times in the mirror before they even read a self-help book, listen to an inspirational CD, give out a complement, or associate with folks that will help them GROW/PROSPER in their Soul. They are usually Vain, Prideful & most definitely very SELFISH people…not to exclude that they portray a “fraud-type” behavior of somebody they “REALLY” are not. It’s mainly about their outer appearance not depth, substance or purpose-living. 

In 2Timothy 3:1 it says “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be LOVERS OF THEMSELVES {Narcissism}, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, SWOLLEN WITH CONCEIT, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.” I’m choosing to love them, but at a distance because they are the ones that is ALL ABOUT THEM which equates to SELFISHNESS. 

A narcissist is someone who after taking the trash out, gives the impression he has just cleaned the whole house. He or she can actually change a light bulb by themselves because all they do is HOLD the bulb as the world revolves around them. LOL! They are the ones that cannot be corrected, but love correcting you. They walk around with their insecured self “puffed” & dont really consider your input. They are all into ADMIRING themselves & everybody else is second…thus others are not to be taken so serious. They might have sincere intentions to serve, but not till after they are served first. They like taking “short cuts” by using steroids to improve their performance/appeal, omit personal growth, & lie because its all about “covering-up & protecting” the image. They are not CONTENT with how God made them “naturally”, so their soul lives restless. They are LEGENDS in their own mind & can be very disciplined when its to their advantage, but lack integrity with their word when others are involved. Are you developing a relationship with one today? Look out!!!

SINGLES please be aware that whoever chooses to MARRY a narcissist…just know that it is the closest thing to hell on earth because they will require excessive attention, they will be unwilling to acknowledge your feelings/needs, they will get into a fit of rage if they dont get their way, they are obsessed with themselves, they will be constantly envious of others, & they have this false sense of entitlement. Marriage is not in what you can get, but in what you can GIVE…which is EVERYTHING of yourself which they wont do. You don’t just marry the Box {outer}, but you marry the CONTENT {inner}; and the inner is the one that will give their ALL…which a narcissist wont do. They will need to HUMBLE themselves {or be humbled} & allow The Potter to perform extensive surgery on their Soul so that they consider OTHERS sometimes even better than themselves. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly if you allow Him & Deny self. Many live not knowing that God requires you to DIE in order for you to truly LIVE. 

In conclusion, I’m all into HEALTH, FITNESS, IMPROVEMENT & LOOKING MY BEST, but when we are MORE concerned about COSMETIC change rather than HEART change…we’ve missed the essence of Grace. God gave the answer to ALL of our problems even knowing it was going to be rejected. We should be saying “I Love The Way You Love Me God” & whatever you need to do to me to make my life & my Love for you more perfect… just help me do it. Have your way in me Lord! When we EMBRACE GRACE…we TRANSFORM from the inside-out & a change as such is more concerned about pleasing God than one’s self which is God’s will. When we please God FIRST…we then are filled with His power, compassion & love to share the Gospel; while going out of our way to help our fellow man & not live to overly consumed with “ME-ME-ME”.
