Put others first because Jesus put you first.
In Philippians 2:3-8, Paul explains how Jesus is the ultimate example of humility. He writes, “As you deal with one another, you should think and act as Jesus did. . . . he was humble and obeyed God completely. He did this even though it led to his death.” (NIrV) As God’s Son, Jesus is equal with God, but instead of using that to his advantage, Jesus became one of us. He put us first and made a way for us to have a relationship with God.
Put others first because Jesus put you first. When it comes to our interactions with others, we should remember what Jesus did for us. Rather than thinking that we’re the best or that we deserve the most, we should remember that Jesus deserved everything, but gave it up because he loved us so much. When we put others first, we show them a glimpse of what Jesus did for the entire world.
