The Word - "Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves." Philippians 2:3 ESV
A Thought - People matter, if for no other reason than God created them in His image and they matter to Him. It seems like we are all jockeying for position from the time we are little; stepping on each other to be first in line, get into the best school, to get a crummy discount flat screen TV on Black Friday. What if we just let people go ahead of us? What if we trusted God to take care of our needs AND to use us to meet the needs of others? What if we simply did what all of our moms told us to do? "Think of someone besides yourself." Sure, we might lose out on a cheap TV, but we just might become better humans in the process.
A Prayer - Lord, I am often selfish. Jesus, if I am going to follow your example, I'm going to have to consider others better than myself. Doing that goes against what the world and my flesh tell me. Today, I choose to do things Your way. Help me, Lord. - In Jesus' name, Amen.
