Show selflessness by doing this (add your suggestion)

helpJust read a post on how to be less selfish, and it was less than satisfactory, to my mind.

So I thought I’d appeal to the Fellows and readers of TFR:

What specific actions would you suggest for Christians to show selflessness in their actions?

The list ought to be almost endless, wouldn’t you think?

Down with selfishness

Problems persist on my personal site, so here goes the Daily Bible Devotional again on TFR.

EgotismHumans are selfish, thinking first of their own desires. In order to be the people of God, we must repent of our selfishness and think first of our neighbor. Jesus explains how:

In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you, for this fulfills the law and the prophets.
Matthew 7:12 NET

We already have a good idea of how we want to be treated, how we want others to judge us. With this measure we should treat others.

In a word, this idea expresses the sense of Scripture and, we may add, the sense of our Lord Jesus’ coming to earth.
