Do and do not

February 18th, 2020

Philippians 2:3-4 NLT – Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. [4] Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

I love the simplicity of Philippians 2:3-4. It gives us a couple of things to do and a few things not to do.


  • Be humble like Christ
  • Be concerned for others


  • Be selfish in the way we live
  • Be someone who only tries to impress others
  • Be someone who only is concerned for themselves

My heart is to be someone who is in the “Do” category above. Being humble and concerned for others is at the heart of being a Jesus follower.


Dear God, please help me to have the attitude of Christ. Please help me to be humble in all I do and help me to be concerned for others too. Amen.
