I have been trying so hard to be in God's word everyday! It seems to be a struggle for me because I am so busy. I get up in the morning and either have buckets to wash, houses to clean, a little man who needs me, or my home projects! BUT...when I go through a dry spell of not being in God's word...boy can I ever tell. Especially in my attitude towards others and my love for others. I have been trying to read first thing in the morning! So far it is working!:) This morning's daily bread was sooooo good for me to read. I wanted to share the verses that were a long with it! They are very convicting and very much what I needed to read this morning! If anyone else is interested in checking out the daily bread devotional, I do it online! http://www.rbc.org/odb/odb.shtml
"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2: 3-11
