“Love does not Seek its Own”

Matthew 27:1-10

As a mechanism of self-preservation, people are inclined to hoard. But, while hoarding may make a person materially wealthy, it leads to spiritual destitution. We can see selfishness even in ministers as they disregard the spiritual health of their flocks while seeking their own pleasures. Ignoring the rights of others, neglecting the needy and suffering, and showing heartless indifference are symptoms of selfishness. In the case of Judas Iscariot, his attitude led to the ultimate selfish act—betrayal of our Savior.
