Look around. If you see something that is "wrong", "troublesome", "broken", "crooked", "scary", "bad", "sad", "heartbreaking", or "corrupt", selfishness is not too far away. Selfishness can materialize in a lot of different ways but selfishness can also be prevented with self-control. Stopping our words and actions before they occur will often prevent a lot of problems for us and for others. But stopping our words and actions requires us to think about others and not ourselves.
Lord, help me to put others first and that will help me to exercise better self-control.
