Interesting or Not ?

Philippians 2:4 ESV

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

*Have you ever noticed how easy it is to talk about your wants, needs, what bothers you, or what's on your mind? Yet, at times when others do the same thing, we tend to tune them out or think poorly of them just because you don't see their issue as a problem. Perhaps you even take the time to care about someone's needs, but it is only regarding those who are in your circle or those who satisfy you. All these things are still of your own interests...Things that intrigue you. However, what about interests that others have that aren't familiar, those that do not bring you pleasure, or those that are on another level. If you only take interest in people and topics that interest you, you may never broaden your perspective or stretch your capabilities. Go deeper in who and what God tells you to take interest in...You never know where your blessings are located...
