Unity through Humilty
My sisters and brothers many people – even Christians – live only to make a good impression on others or to please themselves. But selfishness brings discord.
When we work together, caring for the problems of others as if they were our problems, we demonstrate Jesus’ example of putting others first, and we experience unity. Don’t be so concerned about making a good impression or meeting your own needs that you strain relationships in God’s family.
Selfishness can ruin a church, but genuine humility can build it. Being humble involves having a true perspective about ourselves. It does not mean that we should put ourselves down. Remember before God, we are all sinners, saved only by God’s grace, but we are saved and therefore have great worth in God’s Kingdom.
We are to lay aside selfishness and treat others with respect and common courtesy. Considering others interests as more important than our own links us with Jesus, who was a true example of humility.
We should and must guard against any prejudice, or jealously that might lead to dissension. Showing genuine interest in others is a positive step forward in maintaining unity among believers.
Jesus was humble, willing to give up His rights in order to obey God and serve people. Like Jesus, we should have a servant’s attitude, serving out of love for God and for others, not out of guilt or fear. Remember, we can choose our attitude. We can approach life expecting to be served or we can look for opportunities to serve others.
