Others First

This 1-minute devotion explains the reason most relationships fail and it offers sound Scriptural advice. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

Selfishness kills relationships.

That's why there are so many divorces, broken friendships, estranged parents and children.

If we're interested in healthy relationships, we must be sensitive to the needs, desires and interests of others, not simply our own. 

This seems so obvious, but it's not. Our natural tendency is selfishness and our culture encourages it.

That's why Philippians 2:3-4 reminds us: "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of the others." 

This verse doesn't say our personal interests don't matter in relationships; it says they should be secondary to the interests of the other person. 

Why not take time today to ask God if you've been living selfishly in any of your relationships. Then ask His help in being sensitive to those things which matter to others, not simply those things which matter to you.
