Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.title
Humility means looking past yourself. It means taking an interest in others and looking out for them. The advice in these verses is something that every Christian should condor and keep in their hearts as they serve others. Don’t be selfish. This is so difficult when our fleshly desires take over, but we must look to the needs of others instead of our own. Don’t impress others. In a world that pushes you to keep up with the Joneses, be who God created me to be. Do not worry What the world will think. Trying to live competing with others and their successes, you will be focused on one thing: yourself. Instead of successes, you will find emptiness. It is so fulfilling to meet the needs of others just as you this is true serving as well.
Take some time and pray today about how you can serve those around you, your community, and your church. You will find great joy.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me be a more humble person who looks out for the needs of others instead of my own. Amen.
