Joni and Friends Daily Devotional 9th November 2022 Wednesday Message

TOPIC: The Interests of Others 

SCRIPTURE: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.

-Philippians 2:3-5 


Christ is the ultimate example of selfless humility, and we are never more like him than when we demonstrate this godly quality. The quickest and surest path to humility is to follow the advice of today’s verse: “consider others better than yourself.”

I have seen my husband Ken time and again looking out for my interests before his own. It’s not the big things like getting up at 3:00 a.m. to turn me; it’s the little things. Making sure my wheelchair batteries get charged every night, that the coffee is prepared for the morning, and that I have plenty of soy milk for my special drink each day. When I notice that he’s placed a full box of tissue on the counter, I smile. It’s that quality of humble service I appreciate most about him (and it’s what energizes my love and respect for him).   

When does humility happen? When you get in a conversation and do more listening than talking. Humility is cultivated when you push others in the spotlight. When you put a lid on your itchiness to take credit for a positive outcome.

When you work behind the scenes to ensure the success of the other, to promote their interests, or to make certain they get recognition for a project (especially if you contributed significantly to that project). A sure path to humility is to not quickly raise your hand in Bible class when you know the answer (especially if you’ve already given answers). Plan a way to “look out for the interests of others” today. 

Jesus, thank you for reminding me to make my neighbor’s case my own. Help me not to focus on humility but only my friend and my Christian service to him.
