~Friday for Friends~
"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others." Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)
I think this is a very very hard thing for us to do. The way we look at it, the first thing we should do is get ourselves comfortable. If we help someone in the process -good, but that's not the focus. So wrong.
Let's try to work on that, on putting others first. We have a great example - Jesus Christ (verse)!!!
"In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!" Philippians 2:5-8 (NIV)
How about you? What can you do for others today?
