Philippians 2:1 says” If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion.
When it comes to humility we all can look no further than the mirror, what is it about ourselves that we don’t like wearing humility? Do we think we are better than that, or do we think that it’s for weak people?
In this verse, we see that God’s word telling us to think of others before yourself. The apostle Paul was reminding them that if you gotten anything at all out of following Christ. If His love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you. If you have a heart, if you care-then do me a favor. Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front, don’t sweet talk your way to the top.
Put yourself aside and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. Doesn’t this hit home to you? So often we can surely forget those teachings we need to be reminded, therefore we are to wear the word around our necks as a garment. Seems like everybody is out for themselves but occasionally you happen to run into some people who wear the garment of humility.
Of course, the world is going to tell you to stand up be strong don’t show humility to people for they will think you are weak and take advantage of you. Some people do take advantage of us but that doesn’t give us the right to not to show humility.
Jesus knew all too well what Humility was, He wore it and people flocked to Him. Jesus never shun anybody away.
