In a world where it is pretty much everyone for themselves, scripture can correct that. In Philippians, Paul addresses this issue with the Christian believers. It is okay to look out for your own interest. We do need to be good stewards over what the Lord has given us, but the Lord also desires that we would be concerned in what concerns others as well. If we are only concerned over what concerns us, then we are not interested in glorifying God, we are interested in glorifying ourselves.
Whom has the Lord placed in your life that you should care about? Pray the Lord would strip you of your selfishness and see how you can serve others and glorify God.
