Selfishness, The Air We Breathe
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4
Maybe you have heard the popular phrase, "If you' re not first, you' re last." Unfortunately, selfishness permeates many cultures, and has absolutely invaded the western attitude and mindset. This attitude, however, is completely unbiblical. Can you imagine what would have happen if Jesus had come to this earth, and as He grew up in His humanity, never considered another soul? What if He had lived life on this earth thinking only of Himself, not willing to share or sacrifice for the sake of others? As Jesus followers, we are encouraged and instructed to honor others by considering them more important than ourselves.
Today, how can you show someone that they are more important than you?
