We all have an ego.
It seems to be something that is inherently a human characteristic.
Egos also seem to develop faster and larger in some folks than in others.
Remember the old song, “I can do anything better than you.”
It’s a catchy tune, but it is also a very profound description of ego.
Unfortunately, it is true that failure to have your ego under control can nearly always lead to conflict and misunderstanding.
Ego can harm and at times destroy friendships. Ego can cause conflict between religious faiths.
An example of that is the fierce hatred that some Islamic elements have for people of Christian faith.
Money is probably the most prevalent display of excessive ego.
Not only with the implication of having more wealth than someone else, but it has also given those with great wealth the power to rule and instigate conflict among nations.
Ego is probably the most harmful of all human traits.
Therefore, it would be well if we followed the example of Jesus Christ, who did not have an ego or any human failings
Of course, the human race has proven that we are incapable of following his example completely, but consider how much happier this world would be if we really tried to control our ego.
