How can I confront the selfishness in my own life?

1 John 3:17If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?

The best cure for the selfish heart is giving.

Philippians 2:4Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Unselfishness is learning to put others first.

Matthew 4:8-9Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.”

Matthew 16:26“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?”

Mark 10:37-38They replied, “When you sit on your glorious throne, we want to sit in places of honor next to you, one on your right and the other on your left.” But Jesus said to them, “You don’t know what you are asking!”

Resist the temptation to make choices guided by a desire for personal gain. Such ambition will lead you to make very bad decisions. It will also cause you to start expecting things from God, rather than asking him what he expects from you.
