Care for others!

Philippians 2:3-5 (Amplified Bible)

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:]

What really strikes me here today, is not just that we must regard others as better than ourselves, and be more concerned with their interests, but after that the writer say, its the same attitude and purpose that Jesus had. So Jesus thought more of you than He did of himself, even though He is the Son of God! He was more worried about YOUR interest than about his own life.

So if Jesus, the Son of God, the KING of kings, thinks more highly of me than Himself, well then I got some mind changing to do!
