LEARN TO UNDERSTAND
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also the interest of others. Your attitude should the same as that of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 2:3-5 NIV
The world need people who will understand them, they are a lot of people who have been misunderstood for years and now are longing to be understood. You need to learn to understand your spouse, parents, children, friends, relatives and most of all to understand God.
The church needs to understand people and needs to start fulfilling the purpose of her existence instead of focusing on herself. Christ created a selfless church, the one that will think more of other than thinking for herself.
Christ promised He will take cares of the church if the church takes care of the lost. No wonder many churches are struggling financially; and there are some corrupt ministers force people to give their money by using deceptive ways because they have left their original goal and concentrate on other goals that are not God’s.
This morning, you need to ask the Lord to help you understand people. Many folks are tired with people with negative attitude, people who do stuffs for their own advantage and use everything including others to climb higher in life. People need the church to step up and start showing the Jesus like attitude to them.
Someone once say people will not care how much you know until they know how much you care. It doesn’t matter how much you think you know God; if you will not learn to understand people in their struggles then your knowledge won’t matter to them. Love must start first and everything will be build upon it; and if the church will learn to love the lost then she will win many by love rather than knowledge.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer….
Dear Father, I’m asking that You may help me to understand people and treat them with respect. Help me to have a Christ like attitude towards all people who you allow to come in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
