God says develop yourself daily first through obedience and self care physically, mentally, socially and spiritually so you can help others.
1 Timothy 4:16 reads, [Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.] Matthew 7:3-5 reads, [“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye]
When you love God, you will love yourself in such a way that you don't loose your equilibrium by trying to save others.
