When we put ourselves before others, we aren’t going to be successful. Sure, those who put themselves first seem to be successful but they really aren’t. They are really unhappy. We are to put others first and look for ways to help them succeed. We should encourage others to help us so they can feel included. When we put others first, God will ensure success.
Luke 12:15 “Then he said, ‘Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.’” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us not to be selfish or greedy. Help us to be aware of our actions and be sure we are giving and helping others. We know You can make great things happen when we put You first, others second and ourselves last. Help us today to find ways to help others succeed. In Jesus name. Amen.
