Philippians 2:3

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility, consider others better than yourselves." NIV

"Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves." KJV

In our world as it is now, there is nothing that will set apart the children of God more than humbleness and treating others as though they are better than we are. It doesn't take long for our humility to be tested once we have pulled out into traffic. Likewise, our human nature just fights to dominate when we are in a crowded shopping place and people are pushing and inconsiderate. If we as Christians cannot control our human natures in such places, we should not place ourselves there where we likely become overwhelmed and become like the world. If we take the time to be in the presence of the Lord and hide His Word in our hearts, we will be equipped with the proper armor to be victorious in times like these.

Heavenly Father, You know what the prevailing spirit of this world has become and that it is difficult for even the most dedicated Christian to live among such depravity. Help us, Lord, to stay close to Your side, protected by Your Word, in the shadow of Your hands. We need to be in places of strife, pride, and entitlement so that we can shine as lights to guide those who are lost there. Help us be lights in this dark world, we pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
