Staying Focused on Others

10:31:00 AM
As we have therefor opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. ~Galatians 6:10 KJV
Our first focus should be God, but after that, who should be our focus?

A lot of people say that we should focus on ourselves. Make sure we are taken care of.

There's this saying that's been going around. It goes something like this: "Jesus is first, I am second." Have you heard it before?

I want to submit to you that that's not God's plan. His plan was never for us to be focused on ourselves but be focused on Him first and others second.

Being focused on ourselves will make us blind to the needs of others. And how can we do good to others if we're only focused on ourselves?
Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. ~Philippians 2:4 KJV
Christ was the perfect example of serving others even as God.
And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. ~Matthew 20:27-28 KJV
God Himself, in human form, came and set the example for us to follow. He gave His life for our dirty flesh, so we could be reconciled to God through Him.

If you're a Christian, you're eternal destiny has already been determined. But those who do not believe still have a chance to accept the free gift.

So let's be looking out for the others around us that need Christ's sacrifice.

And as for the believers in our lives, we can be looking out for their needs as well. In ways that show we're more focused on them than ourselves.
