LOVE IS NOT SELF SEEKING
1 Corinthians 13:5
13:5 “It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”
OOOO-KK. When we see this we say “why not love myself?” I don’t think God meant that. He means when we do things do we have the right motives? Are we doing things for others to look good or put a feather in our own hat? Or are we profiting something at the expense of someone else? Are we getting the best piece of chicken off the grill instead of giving it to someone else? Are we always trying to please ourselves and not others? When we do things that only bring the benefit to us we are being self-serving. Jesus only did things for others and not for Himself. He showed us how to love and what not to do or to love. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and let His example lead you to love.
