Scripture of the Day - September 18, 2012

Philippians 2:5  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Some people take this scripture and brush it under the rug. You see, applying God's word to your life takes effort and it takes admitting you just might be dead wrong in your perception of things. People don't like either of those. I was born this way and that's just my personality they will say in defense of their actions. Retaliation is their motto. God is not impressed with your perception and as for retaliation, He says get over yourself, vengeance is mine, I will repay!
He wants you to see things through His eyes. After all, He sees you through His precious blood that covers your sins. So back up a few verses here and let nothing be done through strife and vainglory...that means empty pride or a vain opinion...but in lowliness of mind...that means having a humble opinion of yourself, not being puffed up...let each esteem other better than themselves... that means put others first. 
God is not going to force you but if you don't obey.... well don't expect the blessing to cascade from heaven.
