Today’s QT says… if I have Jesus, be one with other who also have Jesus, and don’t do anything out of selfish ambition, but out of humility of considering others better than myself.
When I am doing things for other people, like giving rides, I have to stay spiritually awake because it’s so easy to get discouraged by people always coming out late, making me wait for them every time. I think how much more loving it would be if they can come out and wait for me to come pick them up, rather than me coming to pick them up, then wait for them to come out. But it’s not their love that matters, or their love that makes me give them rides. It’s for Christ’s love that I do anything that I do, that I have anything that I have, and that I am anything that I am, and if anyone makes it harder for me, then more love I can hope from above. However, it is when I forget this truth that it I actually get discouraged. This is why it’s so important to stay spiritually awake. Otherwise, it will be so easy to butt heads with others, and that is not good for the gospel.
Application: live today constantly reminding myself everyone is better than me
