The Master's Cleanse - Selfishness

Day Six: S is for Selfishness

Defined by the dictionary: stinginess resulting from a concern for your own welfare and a disregard of others.

Prayer time focus: God to reveal selfishness in my heart
God: the master of my minutes

Proverbs 18:1An unfriendly man pursues selfish ends; he defies all sound judgment.”

Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.”

Practical: Find verses about how when we are serving others, we are serving Christ. Memorize your favorite.

Prayer time focus: Today mediate on every way you can remember when Christ served someone else in the scriptures
