Correct Attitude to Others - Part 14


"Be in agreement with one another. Do not be proud; instead, associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own estimation." Romans 12: 16 (HCSB)

I really like the King James translation here - "Be of the same mind...." That's exactly what the Greek phrase is saying. As fellow Christians, we are to be in agreement. We are to cherish the same viewpoint, be harmonious in our thoughts. How is this accomplished?

Paul gives three things - don't put yourself on a pedestal, seek to be with the humble, don't think that you have all the answers. We are to have the mind of Christ, we are to follow a Christian Worldview that is established by God's Word, not man's ideas.

Today, take some time to look at yourself - where are you. Lifted up and full of yourself - or seeking to join in the mindset of Christ? Take a true inventory - and then seek to make it right.
