  1. I remember singing that in Sunday School when I was a little girl 🙂
    “J-O-Y, J-O-Y, this must surely be
    Jesus first, and yourself last, and others in between”
    LOL we used to have little handbells to ring as we sang each letter of J-O-Y 🙂

  2. I have taught this for years, and had to define it a bit more because I was putting others desires before my needs. (For the record, that is a bad habit with devastating long term results!)

    Here’s what I started implementing.

    Jesus first!
    Others needs
    My needs
    Others desires
    My desires

    Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Don’t forget about your needs so you can love others longer and enjoy life more abundantly!

    Keep up the great thought provoking posts!
