Unity Via Humility
There are some really convicting statements in this week's passage:
"Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others."
We love to celebrate when people live like this. In fact, all of us who read this want this to be said of our own lives. And yet we all know how truly difficult it is to live this out. Because of some deeply embedded selfishness, I always find it easier to operate out of selfish ambition and look to my own needs before others'.
We study one paragraph in scripture that could change everything about how we live a life joyfully emptying ourselves out for others. This passage will lay out something we may have missed for too long: the answer to the power of HOW we actually live this out.
