Vice: Selfish

Php 2:3a "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit." The Bible calls us to be more than just good. There are plenty of good people, perhaps even the vast majority of them, whose actions are largely motivated out of selfish ambition and vain conceit, who while they may have attained an enlightened self-interested, yet by nature are inherently selfish. They do good, not for the good of others, but for their own good, perhaps to attain material wealth or popularity. So let us consider not only what we do, but why we do it. One's motives are often revealed when one's ends have been attained.
