Other’s Interest

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

The natural carnal minds think of their own needs, wants, desires first. Many conversations seem to be a contest of who gets to talk about themselves. Many times when sharing something with someone thee one who should be listening quickly turns the conversation to themselves. We are looking only to our own interest. When we meet someone and say, “Hi, how are you?” Let’s really listen to how they are. Let’s learn to refrain from saying things like, “Well I…” or “Let me tell you what happened to me.” Someone will ask you later how you are and then you can be the subject of the conversation. Let us really show interest in those God brings our way.
