God: love so much He gave (do the same)…
Philippians 2:2-3 (KJV) “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be like minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.”
In our walk with Christ, we come across some directions that frankly seems impossible at times, especially when the recipient might not be the most pleasant interaction to conduct.
We are asked to esteem others above ourselves and although we might be someone who loves to give, help and ensure that others are well taken care of, the truth is that some times our instinct is to run the other way and forget we ever met a person.
It can be quite chilly and off putting, but according to the good book, we have to do it: esteem others better than ourselves. Not hoping to get a prize, but ensure that the best is given to them.
Love can seem to be simply in words, but the testing of our inner man might prove to be a bit more complicated. Love: this word called love.
