I think that many Christians have a problem being humble. It is often hard for me to be humble, too. Sometimes I am proud. When I am proud, I don?t want to make other people more important than myself.
In verses 3b-4 of our Bible Reading today, Paul gives us some good advice about pride and humility. ?…don?t let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble and give more honor to other people than to yourselves. Don?t be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of other people, too.?
God wants Christians to be humble and serve each other. But often I am proud when I should be thinking about other people. I need to remember how Jesus lived. He always put other people first. Jesus was the perfect example of a servant. He was even willing to give up His life for us. We should want to be just like Jesus.
It is hard for me to be humble. But with God?s help, I can be a true servant. I hope that you want to be God?s servant, too. Look for ways to serve other people today.
