Love is Not Self-Seeking

How can love only seek for itself? As Christians we are to love ourselves in a way, but only for the sake of self-esteem...not to only think of ourselves. When you love someone you do things for them...open doors for them....hug them...pray for them...and do it all not for the glory of the self, but for the honor of serving another.

"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.
-Matthew 23:25 -

You have lived on the earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.
- James 5:5 -

But for those who are self-seeking and reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
- Romans 2:8 -

Turn my heart towards your statutes and not toward selfish gain.
- Psalm 119:36 -

An unfriendly man pursues selfish ends; he defies all sound judgement.
- Proverbs 18:1 -

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
- Philippians 2:3 -

But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such "wisdom" does not come from Heaven, but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
- James 3:14-16 -
