There are a variety of messages and a boat-load of different situations that push the play button. But one in particular demonstrates where we are on the journey of loving others.
When we encounter people throughout the day one of two messages tends to play in our mind.
What can I get from this person?
What can I give to this person?
The phrases are very similar with the exception of two little words that make a BIG difference! Are we looking to get or to give?
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. ~ Philippians 2:3-4
