It’s definitely time to overcome selfishness and to be of service to others. The dividend, the reward to being SELFLESS is rewarded by our creator, God the Father. He will elevate us when we sacrifice and honor his statues.
How to Overcome Selfishness:
“Rather, in humility value others above yourselves”. (Don’t compare yourself to any one else. Be there for others. Think about other people’s interests not just your own) -Philippians 2:3
“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness.(Change your thought pattern to take on the spirit of servanthood, to serve others, the model that Jesus lays down) -Philippians 2:5-7
Prayer: Lord help me to be more in service to you, giving up my selfish tendencies and to open my heart, eyes and spirit to see others as you do so that I may be more tolerant, loving and giving to others. Replace my selfish tendencies with a spirit to be of service and to act in humility without conceit. Thank you Lord. Amen.
