Let us be humble and considerate of others

Philippians 2:3-5 3 Don't be jealous or proud, but be humble and consider others more important than yourselves. 4 Care about them as much as you care about yourselves 5 and think the same way that Christ Jesus thought: 6. Christ was truly God. But he did not try to remain equal with God.7 Instead he gave up everything and became a slave, when he became like one of us.

Christ himself is our example in considering others and their needs as more important than our own comfort. He had it good, comfortable and secure but in obedience to the Father He put it all aside to serve and save us. No servant is higher than his Lord and with acknowledging Christ as Lord comes responsibility to serve the Father by caring as much about others as we care for ourselves. It is a great honour to walk in His footsteps and sacrifice comfort, security and our material resources in order to serve Him by serving people in need.

8 Christ was humble.

He obeyed God

and even died

on a cross.

9 Then God gave Christ

the highest place

and honored his name

above all others.
