Would we be so willing to give up any rights or interests for the benefit of someone else?

Christ’s Humility

Jesus had every right and privilege to all the riches of heaven, and yet, not seeing that as something to hold onto, He willingly gave up those rights in obedience to God and for service to others.  He is our supreme example of humility, considering others interests more important than His own.  Christ came to serve not to be served.

Would we be so willing to give up any rights or interests for the benefit of someone else?

Unfortunately in our world today we too often have the attitude “what’s in it for me?”  instead of “how can I serve?”.

We owe everything to God who has done and continues to do so much for us all.  Let’s follow the example Christ set for us by serving one another in humility and love.  Read about Christ’s humility in Philippians chapter 2.
