Question: In 1 Corinthians chapter 10 verse 24, can you please elaborate on it?

Answer: 1 Corinthians 10:24 says, 'Let no one seek his own, but each one the other's well-being.' This verse is telling us that we ought not be so self-centered that we are indifferent to the needs of the people around us. Paul said it this way in Philippians 2:4, 'Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.' Jesus said it this way in Matthew 22:39, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' It's called the law of love.
