Marriage Monday .....Me First!

The cultural philosophies that are prevalent today lean toward glorifying and promoting an extreme self-centered, me-first attitude. It would seem we are living in a society described prophetically in 2 Timothy 3:1-4 by the apostle Paul.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 

God's ways are not what we would always expect them to be- but they work! 
Giving up one's own self- interest to please and build up others to promote mutual unity?  God's Word tells us that forgetting one's self and focusing instead on the needs of others produces the sense of unity and joy that God grants to likeminded and obedient believers.
