Love is not Selfish
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish , but have everlasting life.
We see in this scripture that God so Loved…. that He gave and not only did He give He gave His ONLY. So if Love is what Motivated our Heavenly Father to give, that tells us that Love CANNOT be selfish.
1 Corinthians 10:33 …”Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit , but the profit of many, that they may be saved “.
1 Corinthians 13:5b.. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking;
Selfishness is what will keep you from operating in the God kind of love.
God wants to remove your “stony heart” (selfish heart) and replace it with a heart full of love (Ezekiel 36:26). Keep these things in mind today.
1. Selfishness will stop faith from working in my life.
2. God commanded me to love others.
3. God loves me so much that He gave his only, what can I give today?
Heavenly Father thank you for giving your only Son, because of the Love you have for me. Help me to see the areas in my own life where I need to work on my love walk. Help me to love even when it is uncomfortable and even if it means giving someone MY one and only. I love you Lord and I thank you for bringing it to pass, in Jesus name.
