I often hear, “I’m doing this for myself” and there’s nothing wrong with this by itself, but I worry that people are forgetting something extremely important: we should do all things for God’s glory (1 Cor 10:31). The two are not opposed. You can take care of yourself and be pleasing to God, but the order is important. Do you first and foremost take care of yourself for the sake of yourself, and only secondarily (as a byproduct) “please” God? Or is your first and foremost goal to please God for His sake, SO you take care of yourself? There’s a HUGE difference. You can make an idol of the self and then use the byproduct to justify yourself. It’s very subtle and dangerous; do not confuse the two.
