Where there is Envy & Strive; there is confusion and all manner of terrible satanic works; there you find disaster, calamity, sorrow, chaos
Gen: 4:9. James 3:16. 2 Tim 3:2. Prov 11:26. Phil 2:21
Every Sinful Action that man does can be traced down to a particular thing.
ü The reason some people are disloyal

ü The reason some people are happy when things are bad for others.
ü The reason why there are several marital turbulence

Any Sin that man does can be traced to Just One Thing; SELFISHNESS.

v Selfishness is the greatest curse of the Human Race
v Selfishness is the Principal Root of corruption of Man

v Selfishness is taking advantage of others.
v Selfishness is attitude of being concerned of you above others.
v Nations are ruined when politicians think for themselves first before thinking of others.
