Why Self Last?

A little boy who was displaying selfishness was reminded, "God first, your fellowman second, and self last." The child looked up at his mother and stated his honest feelings: "Well, it's all right with me for God to be first, but I don't want to be last!"

Of course no one wants to be last if it means only to favor another's selfish whims in exchange for his own. On such a basis most of us would share the child's attitude. However, "self last" has deep spiritual significance.
