Do we still have true or false test in schools?

1 Corinthians 10:24, “Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.” (NKJV) or “Let each of us seek our own, and the well being of ourselves.”

Which of the above statements are true?

  1. “Which of the above statements are true?”
    The first statement is true. It is a true directive as to how Paul instructs believers to live their lives.
    However, personally speaking, many times my inconsideration and thoughtlessness towards others make the statement false.

  2. Yes, the first is true. But I have to agree with Debi and MG……”many times my inconsideration and thoughtlessness towards others make the statement false”.
    “Unfortunately, the second statement is generally true!”

      1. Funny but not funny! Don’t think we can find an earthling to grade us since we are all wrapped in the same brown paper with twined string! Just in case one wonders what I mean by brown paper with twine string is a work in progress! That’s me!

  3. The blog asks a question regarding ‘schools’. As a teacher I observe quite a few students. Most of their observable behaviors seem to fit in category #2…seeking our ‘own and the well-being of ourselves’. A few demonstrate a thoughtful concern for others’ interests and we’ll being through service, helping, consideration, etc. I can’t help but think that is due to parental influence in their lives. As a parent of grown children who also seem to fit in category 2, I can look back and see how my own parenting often coddled their self interest and self promotion and selfishness because I did not provide healthy parameters, etc by my own behaviors that could have helped them develop into persons of a category one. It was easier to make an idol of them by pampering them and allowing them to believe they were #1. That did them a great disservice. And my behavior defined the category 2 that I was in and am still trying to grow out of and overcome.
