“In Humility value others above yourselves”
If you’re a “me first”person, here are some verses of scripture that designed to keep you on your toes and knees! “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interest but.. to the interest of the others. In your relationships with on another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus” ( Php 2 :3-5). Now that’s how Jesus treated people, and you have been called to do likewise. Is doing this easy or convenient? No, it runs contrary to everything in our self-centered nature. And because you were gracious yesterday, is no guarantee you’ll treat people the same way today. Grace is like a garment; you have to put it on each morning and wear it all day. How can I live like that? you ask. By drawing daily in God’s grace , and deciding to put others first. By looking for way to support and encourage them. Everybody you meet in fighting a battle of some kind, and you maybe the one person that cross their path who is able to speak a word of encouragement to them. (Proverbs 16:24 reads ” Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.”Don’t let them down. Humility is an attitude that determines ahead of time: “I care about people around me. I don’t always have to be the first. I’m going to help somebody else win for a change. “Humility prays ” Lord, teach me to curb my competitive nature and turn that energy into loving and lifting others. Show me how You did it, and help me to do it too.
