What do you think would happen if you and I spent less time focusing on what we want and more on what someone else might need? (Retired pastor)
It’s a “Me First” society. “I’ll do it my way” could be our generational anthem. It begins in childhood with “It’s MY toy” and “Let ME go first.” Those are cries that parents hear soon after their children learn to talk. So, it’s really difficult for parents and teachers to help young people learn to share and seek the welfare of others before their own. The Bible offers strong counsel.
Don’t be selfish . . . 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).
