Wanting the best for others
It's weird, but how do we have so much emotion for someone we don't know? So, it got me thinking about whether we actually want the best for other people? It may be easier to cheer for Cameron, because I am not a threat to him (my 100m Breastwork time is just slightly slower than his - by about 10 minutes) - but can I seek the best for others who are closer to me. My colleagues, my family, my friends? Do I really want the things that are best for them or am I too proud to cheer them on?
Jesus wanted to bring out the best in others - he came to put others before himself. He suggested that we should go and do likewise.
So how about it - will you put someone before yourself today?
Living in Grace
