Today's Word: Philippians 2:3

When I was still "in the world", meaning before I became a Christian, I was guilty of being vain and fell into the trap of thinking that in a number of ways, I was better than others. But when I was born again and started reading the Bible, I was amazed to find out about the complete humility of our Lord Jesus, who received all the insults and mockery and even refused to defend himself by answering accusations against Him before He was finally nailed to the cross. Humility is something that Jesus wants us to learn from Him and emulate as we live our everyday lives. In Philippians 2:3, we are clearly instructed by the apostle Paul to consider other people as better than ourselves. That is very straightforward and the first time I read this verse, I was struck. And now, I've quit thinking I'm better than other people on doing anything, or on what I have (materially, especially). On this note, I encourage everyone to remember that pride is the greatest sin as it's what caused angels to become demons. Pride is the exact opposite of humility. Our Lord Jesus 
tells us to completely do away with pride and be humble like Him. 
God bless you today.
