So many people feel inferior because they have their egos on their hands.

So many people feel inferior because they have their egos on their hands. The ego stands out as a sore thumb, oversensitive and easily hurt. The thing that individuals must do somehow is push the ego in the background by becoming absorbed in great causes and in great ideals and in great principles. I think that is what Jesus meant when he said, “He who seeks to find his life shall lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake shall find it.” In other words, he who seeks to find his ego will lose his ego, but he who loses his ego in some great cause greater than his ego shall find his ego. This is the thing that challenges us. –Overcoming an Inferiority Complex, MLK
