(Proverbs 18:2 KJV) A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.
I wonder if there is a Hebrew word for “narcissism”? I did a quick word search in the KJV and NASB with no hits. The concept is certainly examined here.
We also see how some ideas are never new. Today we talk about “self-esteem” and “self-actualization” and a whole host of other “self” words. We are totally infatuated with feelings as long as they are our feelings. This seems to be the formula for fools.
So? Be the one eyed man in a world of the blind. Jesus directs us to get concerned for others rather than ourselves. He modeled it. He expects it. Step up to the plate.
