Imagine the world

What is wrong with the world?
Why are there so many troubles among people? Trouble in relationships between men and woman, brothers and sisters, parents and children?
I believe the solution is simple, yet very difficult.
Philippians 2:3-5
3Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves].
4Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interests, but also each for the interests of others.
5Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:]

If you really regard someone else superior and better than yourself, would you ever fight with them?
If you look out rather for interests of other, would there be quarrels among us?
Just think about it, if every one really does that,, like true Christians should, then I consider you better, and you consider me better, and we consider another friend better, and they  consider us better, it will just be amazing!
I believe its possible, really difficult,  but possible. It means you have to sacrifice yourself just as Jesus did. You must submit even in the face of unfairness. Jesus was crucified unfairly,  he considered you and me and everyone better than himself.

Let is roll around in your head! Print it in your heart and spirit. It will take a conscious effort and decision but it can be done!
