Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Philippians 2:4, NKJV
Much unhappiness in the world could be remedied with an antidote so effective it should be distributed over the counter at no charge. People often live self-absorbed lives, regretting yesterday’s failures, stressing over today’s burdens, and fearing tomorrow’s afflictions.
One way to cure mild depression is to step off the “Me Train” and take an active interest in the lives of others. When we take the time to teach, assist, encourage, and love somebody, to put their needs and well-being ahead of our own, our problems diminish in importance.
How much of an interest are you taking in the lives of others? Raising your interest rate is a strategy that pays rich dividends, improving the lives of your friends and family members, sustaining you with joyful relationships, and delivering you from the chains of selfishness.
