We all need to ask ourselves the following: “What kind of mind do I have? What is my mind set on?”
Is my mind focused on my interests, my opinions, my feelings, my wants, my way, my time, etc to the extent that I neglect others, ignore others, hurt others, push others away, ridicule, criticize, demean, fail to love and encourage others?
If we ever find this mind within us, then it’s time we go to Philippians 2:1-11 and do some serious meditating and renewing of our minds in the Spirit. Read it. Understand it. Live it.
“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
HAVE THIS MIND among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
To GOD be the glory!
