Philippians 2:5 In your relationships with one another have the same attitude of mind Christ Jesus had. How many of us place others needs before ours? This can be hard at times especially when there’s things that we want to do or want for ourselves. We all work hard for our money, too hard just to turn around and give it away. If we have 100$ and a full belly but run into a man that is hungry without any money we should share. If you have 2 or 3 vehicles and only drive 1, donate a vehicle to a family in need of transportation. Jesus was all about humbling himself so that He could help to build others. Not only did He feed them with God’s words but also fed them physically and healed their ailments. I love helping others and feel as though there is no greater joy. Yesterday however my friends banded together to not only help me with lots of prayer but also forgiving me for my wrong doings. I also had a friend that helped me at work. I brought him along just to chat with me and he ended up grabbing a large piece of wood from the ceiling stopping it from smashing all over the floor! Amen for that! He also spoke with me about a sensitive issue that I was having and was very understanding. When we help others putting them before ourselves it sets an example of what Christ was like. In turn when they feel this love, it touches their hearts and has then placing others before themselves. Join me today in cracking that hardened shell of self. Break away from it and lend an ear to someone who needs to vent. Give someone a hug, a helping hand, or better yet praying for them in trying times. Show them the true attitude of Christ Jesus! Heavenly father. Thank you so much for yet. Another beautiful day. Help us to be better Christians than we were the day before. Open up our hearts today to see someone who is in need of help. Show us how we can best help this person or person’s. Helping us to be more like you. In Jesus mighty name AMEN!
