Philippians 2:3

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

 

EXAMPLE

Biblical Education is the process by which Godly character is formed, strength of clear conscious and sound mind is amplified, and understanding is sharpened, as a result of which one can walk in divine wisdom.

Someone once approached Blaise Pascal, the famous French philosopher and said, “If I had your brains, I would be a better person.” Pascal replied, “Be a better person and you will have my brains.”

Bible says In Philippians 2:5 “Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus.

LESSON

Paul advocated humility, namely, concern for the needs of others, not just one’s own needs, as the basis for unity in the church. This is the linchpin that guarantees the success of the Christian community.

“True humility is not an abject, groveling, self-despising spirit; it is but a right estimate of ourselves as God sees us.” And when we give over control of our lives to God, He sees us as very valuable. Valuable enough to sacrifice his Son, Jesus to die for us. He loves us that much. THAT is where your value comes from.

When we learn to look at life through a telescope and not a microscope, we can learn the secret of true humility.
