Looking out for the interest of others

Good news is something missing from most news stories, but one story circulating some headlines falls into a category that makes it worth talking about … without it being gossip!

It took a personal initiative and the help of 7,000 views from others to make one doctor’s concern about something he saw while watching a TV show worth the effort of going the second mile.

The concern revolved around a lump on the throat of a woman (who was a perfect stranger to the afore-mentioned doctor) buying a house. And while the lump obviously wasn’t bothering the woman, at that time, it bothered the doctor. That’s why he decided to take action. His effort to reach the woman ended up being to her benefit because the lump ending up being cancerous!

Looking out for the interest of others isn’t always the easiest the thing to do. At times it takes some effort driven by concern. And while the effort will not always be appreciated by everyone, it can and will eventually make a big difference in someone’s life.

Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,” (Philippians 4:1-5 NKJV)
