“But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:” ~Philippians 2:7-8
Are you better than Jesus? Many of would say there’s an obvious answer to that question, but their actions may say otherwise. Jesus knew what it meant to be humbled. He obviously knows what it meant to put the needs of others before His own. Many of us today don’t understand and don’t want to experience that kind of humility. Everything is about us. Where we work, where we live, social status, and the like. But humility is a part of godliness.
Jesus showed us what the true path to greatness looks like. He gave us a model to follow. Life shouldn’t be about building yourself up or seeing how much stuff you can get. Your life should be about following Jesus and learning to live the way He lived. Sometime that will involve giving up what you want for the good of others. Do you want to be like Jesus?
