Day 16: Loving One Another

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)


Father, I ask You to continue to transform me to be more like You. I want to walk in selflessness, preferring others above myself. I want to take the time to understand, to learn, to show love through listening, responding, and through my actions. When pride or selfishness tries to creep in, may humility prevail. Help us collectively, as Christ followers, show the world we are Yours by our love for You and for one another. May we model our lives after You and exemplify unconditional love. Show me where I’ve put conditions on my love for others. Teach me in the everyday moments about sacrifice through my time and being willing to pause for others. Help me love like You do. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
