Our goal around here is to look more and more like Jesus every day. That’s why, this fall, we’re zeroing in on trading selfishness for selflessness. Jesus just had a way of making others feel seen and valued – even when it cost him something. For 21 days, we’re challenging you to do as Jesus did and become more others-focused. How? Through small, daily acts that shift your thoughts, habits and practices outward.

Our Challenge


Do something every day that puts others first.


Read a short, daily devotion to engage more deeply in this journey.


Some bonus ideas that will help you strengthen this habit of living selflessly:

  • Pick a time and place. Spend a few minutes reading the daily devotion and reflecting on your day. Plan ahead by identifying a quiet space and setting a reminder on your phone.
  • Step outside your comfort zone. It is not easy to put others first, but God will meet you as you follow him. Once a day, stretch yourself to live selflessly and talk to God about what you notice.
  • Do something to remember part of your journey each day. Use the habit tracker to write down a few notes. You could also take a photo each day of a detail, a scripture, or a place you wore your West Side t-shirt. (This also helps you remember and look back on this season later.)
  • Don’t do this alone. Connect with other Westsiders and commit to check in with one another through these 21 days. Accountability and encouragement make a big impact when developing a habit!
  • Make it fun! Use your creativity as you think about ways to love on the people and places that are close to you in your daily life.
  • Stay flexible. If you get off-track, jump right back in. Unexpected things happen, but don’t let it keep you from staying on the journey.

Sign Up for Daily Devotions

Ready to begin and grow a habit of selfless living? It starts with daily connection to God. Over the next 21 days, we’re excited to offer daily devotions that will have you reading Bible verses, focusing your thoughts on God and considering important questions -- and all for the sake of spurring you on to live more selflessly.

Every habit begins with showing up one day at a time. Start now by signing up to receive a text message link to the 21 Days of Selfless Living daily devotions. Each day’s devotion will only require a few minutes of your time, but the payoff will be huge – you’ll be looking more like Jesus in no time. Join us!
