It’s unfortunate that in the church many Christians know more about ”self esteem” than ”self denial,” yet self denial is the true essence discipleship. I’ve found often that it’s when we deny self that peace and edification are accomplished; it’s when we insist on our own way, or on selfishness, that problems surface in our relationships. James says the reason people fight and quarrel is because of the sinful desires within (or selfishness); that is the root cause of almost every fight—whether it be in marriage or in friendships—putting self first instead of others is destructive to relationships.
All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.
