Selfishness Brings Evil

I’m told that love is the currency of heaven. In His Word, God commands us to love. First Corinthians 13, tells us that love is the greatest thing, greater than prophecy and hope. Love is all that matters on this earth, and it’s all that will last in eternity. But did you realise that we are protected when we walk in love?  

Sin and personal circumstances have caused many of us to become selfish. When we are selfish or self-seeking, the Scripture tells us that it opens the door to confusion and every evil work. But when we walk in love, when we choose to put others first, when we choose to be patient and kind and walk in unity, we are protected by love. We close the door to the plans of the enemy in our lives. 

Today, check your love barometer. Read 1 Corinthians 13 and see if you emulate the characteristics of love. Remember, love is not a feeling; it’s a choice, it’s a principle, it’s a lifestyle. Receive God’s love today, walk in it, and find His supernatural grace and protection in your life! 

“For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.” (James 3:16, NKJV) 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, I humbly come before You today, begging You to search my heart and remove any selfish, self-seeking ways in me. God, please help me to always walk in unprejudiced love. Almighty Father, thank You for protecting me through Your grace and promises, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

… we have a small favour to ask. Hundreds of people are turning to Godinterest for open, independent, quality devotionals every day, and readers in over 50 countries around the world have subscribed to us. In these perilous times, a truth-seeking ministry like Godinterest is essential. We have no shareholders or billionaire owners, meaning our writing is free from commercial and political influence – this makes us different. When it’s never been more important, support Godinterest from as little as $1 – it only takes a minute. If you can, please consider supporting us with a regular amount each month. Thank you.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that
you need to publish more on this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject
but typically folks don’t talk about such issues. To the next!
Kind regards!!

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally
educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something that not enough people
are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this
during my search for something regarding this.
