VOW: Think About It

Verse of the Week:

Now we that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

Romans 15:1 ASV

I like the way C. S. Lewis describes humility. However, in this day and age, humility is not usually encouraged. We are told we are worth it, we are special, we deserve the best. But you know what, it’s not about us, it is about the other person. Our liberties should not be used to cause others to stumble.

“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.”

~ C. S. Lewis

Another saying you hear touted often is, “I’m a King’s kid.” But have you noticed that those in the Royal Family serve in the military and volunteer in various charities? They see it as an duty and an obligation to do service. Even Yeshua (Jesus) said that those who would be leaders, must be servants. He came as a servant and said that we are not greater than our master. Remember the foot washing at the Last Supper?

But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Matthew 23:11 KJV

We have such a short time on this planet, let’s use it to show the love of Messiah to others. If that means we have to deny ourselves a perceived blessing or right, we should relish the opportunity to bear others burdens. If you “lose” anything in service to Him, He will restore it. Maybe not in this life, but in the life to come. Just remember to stay humble, so you don’t fall into destruction.

Pride goes before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 16:18 NKJV

Live it out this week

Find ways to think about others first and bear others’ burdens. Our Good Shepherd will take care of you, if you take care of His sheep.

If we put others first, we are putting Him first. If we are more interested in our own happiness, we are making Him sad.

Prayer

Heavenly Father help me to see others as You see them and share Your concern for them. In Yeshua’s (Jesus’) name, Amen.
