PHILIPPIANS 2:3-4 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Pride and selfishness always go together. A truly humble person cannot be selfish. Pride is self-importance and self-focus -- which leads to selfishness which is selfish thinking and selfish acting -- the opposite of Jesus' command of agape love in John 13:34. Pride produces selfishness. All selfishness is a manifestation of pride -- thinking you are better, or more important, than others.Pride is the root of selfishness -- and thus the root of all evil.
