Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. – Philippians 2:3-4 NIV
I have always cared about other people and tried to help them as much as possible. Sometimes this isn’t the best trait because I don’t always have good self care. The Lord can show us the perfect balance between self care and caring for others. He knows exactly the right thing to tell us at the perfect time.
His humility is an example to us. He did not heal the sick to become known as a healer. He did it because He loves us and is compassionate.
At any moment Jesus could have snapped His fingers and become the richest ruler on earth, but He didn’t. He came to save us and nothing distracted Him from His Father’s purpose. We are privileged to be called sons and daughters of God. We can rejoice every time that He connects us with someone we can help. Nothing is an accident. God arranges our connections. Amen.
