In His Word Wednesday


Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. ~ Philippians 2:3-4

Just think how different the world would be if we all followed this admonition from Scripture! Can you imagine the difference it would make in our families lives. Even the most humble among us are so self centered!! I know I like to think I'm thinking of others...but if I look deep into my heart most of the time I am only concerned about myself. I am going to be mindful this week to try to put others before myself...want to join me?

  1. I'm in the same boat, I think I'm thinking of others but usually I'm not...

    I get upset at the kids because they're being slow or something, but I'm really only thinking about myself and MY schedule!

    I'll join you, thanks for the reminder.

  2. What a better home I could have if I set a better example on this!! Thanks Shannon. I too know that when I gripe at my kids it is not because I'm concerned about them, but more about myself. Good reminder!
