Philippians 2:4 ” Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

Unfortunately, one of our least lovely traits have been highlighted by the Corona Virus…it’s called selfishness.  We’ve seen it across the United States…people more concerned for their own welfare, with blatant disregard for others.  (I still shake my head in amazement for the toilet paper hoarding.)  But the Scripture above is very clear – we are to think of others.  I Corinthians 10:24 goes on to say, “Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.”  There is no place in a Believers life for selfishness and greed…”for love is not self-seeking.” (I Corinthians 13:5)  And I know mandatory isolation doesn’t help becoming self-absorbed…but today, look beyond yourself.  Focus your concern outward to others and show them the love that’s talked about in the 13th Chapter of I Corinthians.
