The exhortation goes forth in this sermon, "Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others". Short, concise, to the point; in one sentence the challenge is brought to centre court! The great scourge of any society is selfishness; that is when a people become wholly consumed with themselves, to the neglect of everyone else around them!! As Christians, we must guard against this wickedness!
A Christians duty most certainly is to provide for his own household, but after that he must turn his eyes upon the needs of others!!
