I am parked here since yesterday. As I ponder it, I give it to you also.
“Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility (lowliness of mind) count (deem, value, esteem) others more significant (better) than yourselves.”
I felt the peace, joy and lightness of heaven rest upon me as I chewed on this verse. I noted there was no self condemnation or self degradation of any kind. In fact, I didn’t even think about myself at all. I thought of the people we encounter every day, in our own communities and in other places. EVERY ONE of them has a value and significance we are only coming to comprehend. Of course this means each of us also have great value in our Father.
So it is the absence of self consciousness as we grow in HIM and the glory of other consciousness that brings peace and joy to US. See, we can’t lose as we allow Holy Spirit to transform us into the image of Jesus. We stretch, grow and glow every time.
