Unselfish love

June5-9.002

One way Christians can “stand out” in the world is the way we treat others. The mantra for many is “look out for number one.” The Christian is called to do the opposite—to consider the feelings and needs of others before seeking to please self. When we remember that each of us are sinners saved by grace and remember how Christ reached down to us in love and compassion, it makes it easier to stretch out a hand of compassion to those we encounter. Humble doesn’t mean being a doormat; it means viewing others with Jesus’ eyes and choosing to act in unselfish love.
