Romans 12:16 “Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.” (NASB)
“I can’t believe they sat us here.” I happened to overhear a conversation between a pastor and his wife as we were escorted to our seats at a recent conference. We were both speakers that day and had arrived at the same time. Now some of the speakers were seated on the platform, but this couple and myself were seated down on the floor with the other men and women who were attending. I’m not sure why the pastor responded the way he did, but I wonder if today’s verse doesn’t speak to us about how highly we think of ourselves. Jesus thought more of those around Him than He did Himself. Maybe we should too – think more highly of others rather than ourselves.
