If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. —Galatians 6:3
Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith. —Galatians 6:10
When was the last time you did something for somebody out of love of God and people? Why didn’t you help that follower of Jesus when you saw they had a need and you could have helped with it? Did you really think what you were doing was more important than helping that person in need instead— whether they were a follower of Jesus or not?
Sure, we cannot help everyone that has a need and we are not called to do so, but we can help some! Who in the body of Christ could use a hand and will you give it? Are there any people outside the body of Christ that you can give a hand to today? Will you?
Never forget that you and I were so important that God had to help us and yet look what Jesus did for us.
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. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature 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 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 2:3-8
Oh, that you and I would have that mindset of Jesus as we seek to serve others out of the love of God and people (Matthew 22:37-40). May we walk as Jesus walked (I John 2:6).
Dear Father, please help me to serve those You desire me to today. May it be done in Your love in the Name of Jesus and by the Holy Spirit’s power.
