Don’t be concerned only about your own interests, but also be concerned about the interests of others. Philippians 2:4 (GWT)
It is important to take care of our own needs and those of our families. Proverbs 13:22 tells us that a good man leaves an inheritance for their children’s children. We can work and save up for our future and the future of our family.
But that should not be where our care ends. The early church shared everything they had with each other. They ensured that everyone had what they needed (Acts 4:32-35). They not only took care of the needs of their families, but tried to make sure others were not in need.
Because God cares for us and our interests, we can also be concerned for the interests of others. We can spend time in our work helping others grow in their skills. We can mentor co-workers to help them become better workers. We can take actions that are better for the entire company and not just ourselves. We can make the interests of others an important part of our work.
