Wednesday

Read Philippians 2:1-13


2  Your life in Christ makes you strong, and his love comforts you. You have fellowship with the Spirit, and you have kindness and compassion for one another. 2I urge you, then, to make me completely happy by having the same thoughts, sharing the same love, and being one in soul and mind. 3Don’t do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble towards one another, always considering others better than yourselves. 4And look out for one another’s interests, not just for your own. 5The attitude you should have is the one that Christ Jesus had:
     6He always had the nature of God,
     but he did not think that by force he should try to remain equal with God.
     7Instead of this, of his own free will he gave up all he had,
     and took the nature of a servant.
     He became like a human being
     and appeared in human likeness.
     8He was humble and walked the path of obedience all the way to death—his death on the cross.
     9For this reason God raised him to the highest place above
     and gave him the name that is greater than any other name.
     10And so, in honour of the name of Jesus
     all beings in heaven, on earth, and in the world below
     will fall on their knees,
     11and all will openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord,
     to the glory of God the Father.
12 So then, dear friends, as you always obeyed me when I was with you, it is even more important that you obey me now while I am away from you. Keep on working with fear and trembling to complete your salvation, 13because God is always at work in you to make you willing and able to obey his own purpose.

Think


Verse 4 - Look out for one another's interests, not just for your own...  What can you do today that is in somebody else's interest and not your own?

Pray


Open my eyes to see beyond myself today.
