Caring About Others

“Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others” Philippians 2:4.

Set in the middle of teaching about the importance of unity and humility, the Apostle Paul here stresses to the Philippians that an important component of these characteristics is being interested in the welfare of others.

Focusing only on self-interests leads a person away from humility, causing him to become absorbed only in himself rather than caring about what happens to other people—unity cannot exist in such a climate. Someone once wrote, “When a person is all wrapped up in himself, he makes a pretty small package.”

The lesson is obvious: as followers of Jesus Christ, we must have a genuine concern about what happens to others and how they feel—and that concern must at least be equal to the concern we have for our own lives and our own feelings.
