What does it look like to consider others as more significant than ourselves (Philippians 2:3?) Honestly, y’all, it’s not that complicated.
It would look like being happy when others experience good things.
It would look like speaking uplifting words to others.
It would look like showing a genuine interest in the lives of others.
Hold a pencil in your hand. Lift it high above your head. A little higher. As high as you can.
No matter how high you lifted the pencil – you didn’t sink lower. Uplifting others doesn’t mean debasing ourselves.
It’s exhausting to constantly elevate ourselves; it’s work. But it’s exhilarating to uplift others; it’s joy.
Let’s love lavishly. Give generously. Serve sacrificially. Just like Jesus.
