My kids are pretty selfish. Is there anything I can do to help?

Posted on 10/10/2020 by Greg Yoder

Unfortunately, selfishness isn’t a learned behavior. It’s human nature. The only cure for selfishness is heart change, but even in Christ, people can be selfish. The second-best way to change that in our kids is to do a couple of things. First, if your kids are old enough, take them on a short-term mission trip. If you head to an orphanage or do work in a refugee camp, they’ll see how blessed we are in North America. Secondly, set up a family donation project. Have a bake sale, garage sale, or something else to raise money for a local rescue mission, maybe an orphan ministry, or even a child sponsorship program. And remind them what Scripture says: true religion is caring for the widows and the orphans.
