“complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition 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”Philippians 2:2-5
I have heard, “100 pianos tuned to the same tuning fork will automatically be in tune with each other.” As someone who seeks to live according to the Bible, this saying has stuck with me. Those of us who claim to serve Christ should automatically be in tune with each other. However, too often we give notes of discord. I fear this shows that we are not in tune with Christ.
If you claim to serve Christ, look at Philippians 2. It gives us the example of Jesus to follow. We will be much more in tune with each other if we do.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us the example of Jesus. Please help me to live in the humble mindset that Jesus’ showed. I want to live in unity.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
