“And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”
In other words, don’t think so highly of yourself: My problems are bigger or my situation is more important. When we sit back and take a look at the situations of those around us, our situations don’t seem so bad!
“And above all things have fervent love for one another, for LOVE WILL COVER A MULTITUDE OF SINS.”
1 Peter 4:8 and Proverbs 10:12
Jesus also said:
“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
The idea of loving and serving others is a theme found throughout scripture!
“You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.”
Today, let us not look at ourselves or try to be first, but instead let us serve and love those who are around us!
May you have a blessed and joyful day serving and loving others!
