Taking care of ourselves is a good and important thing, but we must take care that it does not make us selfish. Working to fulfill just our selfish desires will do us no good. We must pray to the Almighty Lord to bless us with empathy and compassion towards mankind.
Prayers Against Selfishness: Embracing a Life of Service
