Are you self-centered,self-absorbed, or just just plain selfish. This type of person is all for self,that’s why Jesus said:
When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” (Mark 8:34-38 NKJV). The scripture warns us.
“Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” (Philippians 2:3-8 NKJV).
Be Careful of Selfish Individuals

+They are selfish, self-centered and self-observed, and cares very little or not at all about others.
+These types of behaviors came about through negative experiences.
+Sad to say but with these individuals you are only as good as you last good deed to them.
+Be wise. Love them but never be used by them, and if you can check them and correct them in the love and wisdom of God.
+Those who are more about God and others will always accomplish more in life, live longer and healthier than those who are about themselves.
In Matthew 10:16 KJVS Jesus said :
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.”
