If everybody agreed with ME, they’d be all right. (Lucy in the “Peanuts” cartoon strip)
It’s not just children, like Lucy, who think “me-first.” Have you noticed that many people in a crowded place are almost completely unaware of those around them? Or have you tried to carry on a conversation with someone who disregards your ideas and continually interrupts you? Listening to others carefully and putting them first will make life much more pleasant.
Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. (Philippians 2:3-4)
