Asking And Receiving

I noticed this weekend that I made myself useful without trying to do so. Simply by humbling myself and asking for a little help I found that the ones I asked were in need themselves, only in a different area from the one I was asking about, one where I could be of assistance. In fact, I found that one person I asked was in deeper need than I was, and that I could help him in that need, all because I was willing to open up initially about my own need. This needn't come as any surprise. What started as a purely self-centered gesture widened quickly to center also on others. There's nothing wrong, then, to be self-centered as long as you don't stop or stay there. As long as the process doesn't stall there. "Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others," as Paul the Apostle wrote to the Phillipians. (Phillipians 2 v4) So there is another way to understand enlightened self interest. (other than forgiveness that is)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
