This mantra – looking out for one’s own interests above all others – comes from a culture that has seen humanity fail time and time again. A culture that is wounded, that cries out, “You can’t trust anyone!” But adopting this mantra moves us away from Christ and into a place of self-preservation.

Looking out for #1 was never what guided Jesus. His life, death and resurrection serve as a better blueprint for life. A life attentive to the needs, hopes and hurts of others.
