Look to the Interest of Others

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 

As shared in the post “Aim to Please God Only” Paul, Silas, and Timothy set out to share the Gospel message not for their own interest but for the interest of the new Christians. They took a risk of being persecuted but were courageous and kind to stand in the Light to be seen as who they were with their main ambition being to encourage, comfort, and urge the new Christians to live worthy lives.

As we go about our day, let us also stand in the Light to share this great message: All God wants from us is our heart. Enjoy today’s video: All You’ve Ever Wanted – Casting Crowns.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
