Murray: selfishness

Saturday, February 4, 2023
    Commemoration of Gilbert of Sempringham, Founder of the Gilbertine Order, 1189
    For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
    —James 3:16 (NIV)
    One of the worst things sin did for man was to make him selfish, for selfishness cannot love.
    ... Andrew Murray (1828-1917), Absolute Surrender, Bible Institute Colportage Association, 1897, p. 23 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 3:14-16; Eccl. 4:4; Rom. 2:7-8; Gal. 5:15,19-23,26; Phil. 2:3; Tit. 3:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, elevate the needs of others in my heart.
