Today's Verse : Philippians 2:3


February 3, 2012

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in
humility consider others better than yourselves.
-- Philippians 2:3
Humility is recognizing who God has made us to be and using that
recognition to serve and redeem others. Living in humility as Jesus
did, we don't just practice the golden rule, but we go one step
better -- we treat others better than we would treat ourselves. Are
we instructed to do this because we're unworthy or unfit? No! Jesus
was worthy and glorious, but he counted others better than himself
when he sacrificially gave himself to redeem them. It's a high
standard. It's a hard standard. It is not for wimps. But it is
ultimately glorious. (Hint: Read down through verse 10 and remember
that the same type of reward will be given to the faithful!)
Almighty God, thank you for adopting me as your child and making
me holy and precious to you. Please help me to see myself as you
do, and then, as one of your precious children, empower me to serve
others in ways that help them see your glory. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.
