Selfish Christian

Am I a selfish christian? This post is about my personal struggle to discover whether or not I AM a selfish christian.

What does it mean to be selfish? A defintion of being selfish..lacking consideration for others; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure. I like to think that I am considerate of others and that I’m not concerned chiefly with my own personal pleasure or profit. Have to do some serious thinking about this.

What does the bible say??

Pilippians 2: 3-4  Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. This will be a verse that I will take a while to think about and meditate upon. Nov 18th,2016.

Where am I to now? For many years I would consider myself to have been a compassionate, considerate and even humble, most times, Christian. As I take time to assess my position in Christ, through personal study and prayer, I recognize that there are areas, in my Christlike walk that needs some tender loving care.

My prayer life has to be more focused

My bible reading and study time needs improvement

I have to take more time for others.

Am I laying treasures up on earth or in heaven?

A work in progress
