“Do nothing from rivalry or conceit,
but in humility
count others more significant
Let each of you
look not only to his own interests,
but also to the interests of others.”
Today’s culture message
is more about making yourself great,
Not much is said
about looking out
for the interests of others.
There are some that do
and I am grateful to know many.
But it is difficult
to aspire to humility
because it is almost the opposite
of what we are being encouraged to do.
Jesus had it all.
There is no one above or equal to God.
“Who, existing in the form of God,
did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped,
but emptied Himself,
taking the form of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself
and became obedient to death
—even death on a cross”
Jesus was mocked,
while being tormented
and put to death
in the most shameful manner of all.
