Unselfishness

Be a servant of everyone. Do not be selfish. Do not focus on your own interests. Do not just please yourself. Love does not demand its own way. Love each other with genuine affection. Love your neighbor as yourself.

 

Be a servant of everyone

1 Corinthians 9:19    19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more;

 

 

Do not be selfish

Philippians 2:3    Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

 

 

Do not focus only on your interests

1 Corinthians 10:24, 33    24 Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being. 33 just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

 

Philippians 2:4    Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

 

 

Do not just please yourself

Romans 15:1    1  We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

 

2 Corinthians 5:15    15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

 

 

Love does not demand its own way

1 Corinthians 13:5    does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

 

 

Love each other with genuine affection

Romans 12:10    10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;

 

 

Love your neighbor as yourself

James 2:8-9

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.

 

 

God in his mercy does not give us what we do deserve but God in his grace gives us what we don’t deserve.

 God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

 Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.

 

 

Prayer:   Father in heaven, I praise You for Your Son and the Holy Spirit. I praise You for Your grace in sending us Your wisdom about “Unselfishness.”  Please bless those who have read this article for they too are seeking Your righteous truth, love, wisdom and understanding.

May God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights, our safety nets and our inspiration for loving happiness in all of Your kingdom. Father into your hands I commend my spirit. Not my will, but yours be done. Please come Lord Jesus.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit,

Amen.
