“Not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” (Phi 2:4)

Each of us is innately wired for self-preservation and self-fulfillment. There is actually nothing intrinsically flawed with that. It is how God has created us. However, we are called to look out for those around us. That is not to the denigration of our own interests but for the raising up of others so they are positioned as a priority.

We see what we focus on. Our attention is drawn to what is important to us. As we place priority on the interests of others, we will begin to see opportunities to meet needs and minister to those God has placed in our lives.

As we minister to those around us at work, we minister to Jesus.

Quick Prayer: Open my eyes to the needs of others, that I may serve them and You. Amen.
