Dealing with Selfishness – MBFLP 300

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Sharing is caring!

It is perfectly natural for our children (and ourselves) to be self-centered. It’s also perfectly wrong! But how do we overcome this tendency in our children? Can we do it without constant nagging and scolding? What can we do to encourage our family members to look after one another, rather than each demanding his own way?

Passages We Mention: 

  • Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy,  fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.  Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
       Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,  who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,  but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2:1-7)
  • For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword … (Hebrews 4:12)
