Wooo… My friend! The world is changing, I don’t know if you will agree with me or not. Everybody is very busy now days for his or her interest. It is technically very hard to spend some few minute with your next door neighbor….. This is a little crazy, where are we heading my friend? This reminds me about what is written in Philippians 2: 21 which says “Everyone looks out for his own interest, not those of Jesus”(NIV). I very guilty about this, I feel like I don’t have any spare time to look on the interest of others. I feel like I want to make myself a priority or worry about my needs and not worrying about the needs of my next door neighbor. I always ask myself this question: “what would Jesus do?” I am sure that Jesus interest was to serve others. My next question is: “how many times have I served others?” How many times have I checked on my next door neighbor if they are okay or need anything? Probably it has been several months since I stop by their house when I needed something. It is crazy and very guilty situation. Do you hear me? Are you in the same page my friend? The word of God says in Philippians 2:3-5 that “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 attitude of mind Christ Jesus had:” (NIV) I don’t want to add anything to the above verse, you can clearly understand what it means. There more I read the more I want to confess…..Please think about it and ask God to help us have the same attitude of mind of Christ Jesus had. Life would be so easy if we had Jesus mind in the world we live in today.
Would you pray with me today? “ Father, I am so guilty of my selfishness. You spoke the truth through your words today. I have done wrong in your sight a million times. I waste most of my time trying to “ get” what I feel like it would make me happy and forget about the needs of my next door neighbor. God! Help me to have humility for others and to look not only to the my interest but to the interest of others as you have spoken into my heart today. Jesus, I would like my attitude to be same as your attitude. Help me to change my attitude towards other, I want to love others just as you first love me and died for me at the cross. Lord! I confess my sins today, I am so sorry for hurting you and others. Would you forgive me Lord? Thank you for forgiveness me and thank you for changing my attitudes” Amen.
Have a blessed day my friend, go out today and try to look on the interest of others as you try to meet your interest too.
