“Love does not Seek its Own”

Genesis 4:1-12

No one is immune to selfishness. A quick glance at biblical examples shows the problem in the called and uncalled alike. We see it in Cain's cold-blooded words concerning Abel, Jacob stealing Esau’s birthright, Jonah’s refusal to go to Nineveh, Haman's selfish conceit, and countless others. Human nature is self-centered. We must make a conscious effort to overcome our selfish desires every day.
