Contagious Selflessness

Written by KCC Devotion Team  |  Found in: Caring for Others

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

Selflessness is contagious like a fast-moving virus. When we care for others and look out for them, it is encouraging, and soon other people begin doing the same thing too. The concerns of others should be our concerns as well. We always reap the benefits of generosity because God gives back to us what we give and share among others. Of course, God wants us to protect and improve our own interests but that’s not where our responsibility ends. It is not possible for God to fill our hands with blessings when we are holding so tightly to what we already have. When someone does a good deed, it gently pushes us all to do good deeds. What a much better place the world could be if we all look out for others’ interests rather than just those of our own.
