VerseD: Philippians 2:3-4

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Philippians 2:3‭-‬4, KJV

Do not cause problems or seek popularity or fame.

Take care of yourself, sure, but even more importantly take care of other people.

But, again, do not help others to seek favor, fame, or … revenge.

VerseD: Galatians 1:10

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10, ESV

This may be the hardest part of being a Christian. We can get caught up in helping others more than serving Christ, making people feel better than leading them to Christ.

We should care for physical needs, but we should care more for spiritual needs.

VerseD: Hebrews 6:10

For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.
Hebrews 6:10, ESV

Loving others is loving God. It is a huge part of how get to hear “Well done, My good and faithful servant.”

VerseD: Galatians 6:10

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Galatians 6:10, ESV

Serve others, give to others, encourage others. Especially those in the Church.

We are a brotherhood, a family, united in our Big Brother and God, Jesus.

VerseD: Colossians 3:2

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Colossians 3:2, ESV

It is impossible to rightly serve God if we are not focused on Him. Loving others will fall apart if we are not rightly loving Him, even if we are trying to help others but stay focused solely on physical needs and worldly issues.

VerseD: Micah 6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8, ESV

What many fail to realize about the Golden Rule (treat others as you want to be treated) is how deep this rule goes.

We know about pursuing justice and showing kindness and mercy to others, but without the humble acknowledgment of the need for God’s love and wisdom those are basically meaningless.

VerseD: Colossians 3:23-24

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
Colossians 3:23‭-‬24, ESV

Do you realize how central Jesus is to everything?

We not only serve for Christ, but in all we do we are serving Christ.

Whatever you did to the least of these you did to Me.” (Matthew 25:40)
