Wednesday's Devotional


Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Philippians 2:4

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

There is an inscription on a small tombstone in an English village that reads: "Here lies a miser who lived for himself. He cared for nothing but gathering wealth. Now, where he is or how he fares, nobody knows and nobody cares."

The root of all evil in human nature is the desire to have one’s own say. Self-centeredness is the exact opposite of agape love. Agape love is love that seeks the best interest of the one loved. Selfishness seeks the best interest for one’s own self, so the two are exactly opposite. It is not possible to have agape love and to have self-seeking or self-interest. R. C. H. Lenski, the well-known commentator, has said, "If you can cure selfishness, you have just replanted the Garden of Eden." It was selfishness that caused Adam and Eve to reject God’s way in favor of their own desires. Self replaced God in their hearts and they determined to go their own way. Love, on the other hand, is not interested in its own way, but is preoccupied with the interests of others.

Love does not seek its own. Love considers the other person and gets excited about seeing that their needs get met.

Bro. Paul
