MacDonald: destruction of the spiritual nature

Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
—Philippians 2:4 (NIV)

No indulgence of passion destroys the spiritual nature so much as respectable selfishness.
... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Robert Falconer, v. III, London: Hurst and Blackett, 1868, p. 128 (see the book)
See also Phil. 2:4; 1 Cor. 8:9; 10:23-24; 13:3; 2 Cor. 5:14-15

Quiet time reflection:
Lord, show me my selfishness.
See yesterday
