When we act in conceit or out of superiority, we are not following the example that Jesus set for us during His time on earth. Jesus was a servant. He did not walk the earth acting like God and neither should we! Jesus was concerned with the humanity of each person that He met. God calls us to follow Him, to be humble, and to show His love and kindness. When we feel like acting or reacting out of rivalry, frustration, or conceit, we need to stop and consider the humanity of other people and that God loves them, too!
Don't react out of rivalry or conceit, act out of God's love!
Thank You for loving me and for sending Jesus as a model of how to live. Help me to act out of love and humility. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
