“Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others” – Philippians 2:4

Comment:

One of the traits of anti-social behavior is selfishness or self-centeredness. A self-centered person is one who does not care about the feelings of others. They seek their private advantage over the general good of the people. They hate to see their neighbor succeed in life, and are happy when their brother is in trouble. This attitude is a direct opposite of the admonition of Apostle Paul to with: “Rejoice with them that do rejoice and weep with them that weep” (Romans 12:15; Hebrew 13:3; Proverbs 24:17, 18).

Self-centeredness does not promote true friendship, love and peaceful co-existence, which are some of the hallmark of true disciples of Jesus Christ. As children of God, the evidence to show that we love God is to love our brother. As it is written; “If a man say, I love God and hated his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen” – 1 John 4:2.
