Selfishness is the central "vice" whereby we place concern in our own interests above the well-being or interests of others. I was asked recently by a "well educated" man, "If selfishness is a vice, aren't you being selfish when you remove yourself from others to read the Bible, Pray and Just be Alone?" "Wanting your time alone is selfish because that's what you want to do for yourself." 1 Corinthians 13:5, "...Love ...seeks not her own and does not insist on its own way..." As long as our Spirit and Behavior exalt, honor, or are generous for others, our "Selfishness" becomes the GLORIOUS FULLNESS OF OUR DIVINE NATURE. Love is the Benevolent Harmonious relationship with GOD; YES, SELF LOVE IS OUR DIVINE NATURE.
