Who’s number one in your life?
April 10, 2012
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
There’s an inscription on a headstone in an English cemetery which says:
Here lies a miser who lived for himself
and cared for nothing but gathering wealth.
Now where he is or how he fairs,
nobody knows and nobody cares.
Contrast that to a memorial in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London dedicated to General Charles Gordon which says,
Sacred to the memory of General Charles Jordon who at all times and everywhere gave his strength to the weak, his substance to the poor, his sympathy to the suffering and his heart to God.
In our world today where everyone wants to be first and will step on anybody on their way to the top, as Christians we need the posture and the spirit of a servant. You are called upon to be different, just as Jesus was different… to love even as Jesus loved… to put yourself aside and consider others better than you.
Someone once told me there are those who leave a hole when they die, and those who simply fill one. That’s because when you live for yourself, no one really cares. But when you truly live for others, you’ll leave a legacy far beyond your years and impact eternity for Christ!
USE YOUR TIME ON EARTH TO LIVE BEYOND YOURSELF, LEAVE A LEGACY, AND IMPACT ETERNITY FOR CHRIST!
