Unselfishness Is Active

"The only way we can gain true substance is actively to give of it"

From first to last, Christ Jesus preached a doctrine of active unselfishness. Perhaps best known of the whole Sermon on the Mount is his admonition, "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets" (Matt. 7:12). His own life was a living example of active unselfishness, and near the end of his earthly career he said to his disciples (John 15:12, 13): "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
