Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. — Phil 2:3-4
Selfish Or Selfless:
We are called to a selfless life. One that gives up it rights, wants, and in some cases needs for the betterment of others. We are called to be servants. No just of God and his son Jesus Christ but of others, sinners and saints a like.
Servants of the more high God should not be complainers but should commit all things to God and work for him with all their might.
If you find a deal your first thought should be is there some one who needs this more than me. If there is some small task you see that needs to be done you should look to see if the Lord would allow you to do it.
The kingdom of God is an upside down kingdom. You become great (in the Lord’s eyes) when you become a servant to all. Deacons, elders, bishops, and leaders are to be servants and helpers of the children of God in the congregation not lords over God heritage.
What are you? Are you selfish or selfless?
