ABCs of the Word, "I"

"Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others."

Philippians 2:4

I like how God does not tell us to only do things for others.  If that was the expectation, it would be hard to know how much sleep to get or food to eat, and we'd go around feeling guilty all the time.  From what I've been reading in the Bible, I feel that what God wants is for us to treat others with Christian love, and not be totally self serving.  It's good to find ways to serve him through helping others as He leads us.

  2. Hello, my friend!

    I love your scripture! I have been so behind on visiting--I have missed you!

    I pray your Holy week has been truly special so far-that He has pulled you near as we wait for the empty tomb.


  3. Great verse! Great word! Especially at this season when He did the ultimate for us!!

    Thank you for this blessing!

  4. Hey Sue! How are you? I've been MIA in Blogland for a few weeks. I wanted to stop by and say hello. Thanks for the verse on looking out for our own interests. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  5. Sue, thank you for sharing this verse. I am learning that taking care of self isn't selfishness. These words are very timely. Happy Easter!
