Timeless truths from Philippians 2:3-4.
We don’t need to “make the Bible relevant” it is already relevant! We simply need to hear and obey it. How do you achieve real unity? Simple! Regard others as more important than yourself! The unspoken reality in the Family of Faith is just the opposite. We quarrel and fight because we regard ourselves as more important than others.
Every major marriage crisis, strained relationship, and most problems of life will be solved by following this simple truth: Look out for the best interest of others! You will be amazed at how the Lord will work!
The secret begins in your attitude. If you are self-consumed and full of conceit, you will look at yourself as more important than others. As a result, you will experience tremendous strife. However, if you have a humble mind, you will think of others as more important than yourself. As a result, you will experience tremendous blessings. Instead of hoping others will adopt the a mind of humility, let it begin in our own hearts.
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4 NASB
