How far are you willing to go to Love others?
« on: November 12, 2019, 08:54:34 am »
Philippians 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be like minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.



Before we move forward in this discussion, some will try to argue that putting others above ourselves is not Love but if we look at the context (my reason for including it) we see that it is Love....so that being said, how far are you willing to go to Love others?



A couple of examples, last night I had the opportunity to watch a movie I had waited over 30 years to watch...what if someone had called and needed to talk?  would I have Loved them enough to miss the movie yet again?



Another example, I was having severe lung spasms.  They took so much out of me we decided if I had spasms on Sat. night we wouldn't go to church Sun. so I could recuperate.   One Sat. night I had bad spasms but got a phone call from a friend, her daughter wanted to go back to church but didn't feel comfortable sitting by herself, would I let her sit with us?  I could choose to stay home or choose to go to church.  If putting others best interest above my own is Love which should I choose?



The world teaches us to take care of ourselves so we can care for others...scripture teaches to put others above self and let God take care of us....how far are you willing to go for Love?
