13 Bible Verses about Selfishness - ESV

English Standard Version (ESV)
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.
For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.
A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
but only in expressing his opinion.
The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.
Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Incline my heart to your testimonies,
and not to selfish gain!
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
