Are you a selfish and self centered person? I believe most people are primarily focused on self preservation and meeting their own needs, goals etc. Look at this way; from birth we are all born selfish and self-centered. If you are a parent then you know exactly what I’m talkin bout! Simply put, sharing doesn’t come naturally; we must be taught not to be selfish. Walk with me, if people were born unselfish, there wouldn’t be any wars or conflicts. ….all of us ‘naturally good’ people would consistently defer to one another, and all would be satisfied. There would be no need for such aphorisms as “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” We would naturally do what is right without such reminders. Well, Paul had to remind the church at Philippi in ch. 2 v. 4! He said, “For each of them not to look only to their own interests, but also to the interests of others” and to the church at Corinth he said, “Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor” (I Cor 10:24). I’ve heard it said, “The cure for selfishness is to know where our treasure is. The Christian holds the things of this world loosely because he is laying up “treasures in heaven” (Matthew 6:19-21). He knows it is “more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35), and he lives according to the truth that “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).” The equating divider that separates selfishness between selflessness is humility! Unpretentious humility restores, revives, reestablishes, and heals people as well as, broken relationships!
