Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
This verse, if taken to heart, could change so many things. If we were each able to think this way, and to approach others as if they deserve our very best treatment and care, what could happen? Every decision we made would be a decision for the good of others before ourselves. Of course, this isn’t possible in every situation, but I know I could do better.
Father God, help me to think of others before myself. Help me to take care of the needs of those around me before my own. I will practice this, and keep this verse in my heart. Amen
