DAY 7 THURSDAY: JUNE 2018

LEARN TO APPRECIATE SOMEONE’S SUCCESS IN LIFE!

With all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love (Ephesians 4:2).

There are some persons who are so full of themselves and they will never appreciate someone’s success in life. Such spirit is not from God but from the devil who is the author and father of pride. The Bible says in the opening text that with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love. God wants us as Christians to bear with one another in love. Appreciating someone’s success does not mean that you are failing.

When a Christian learns to appreciate other people’s success in life and esteem them better than himself, he is putting on the Spirit and garment of Christ. No wonder the Bible says in Philippians 2:3, “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.” It takes spiritual maturity and humility for a Christian to appreciate someone’s success in life and esteem them better than himself.

However without the spirit of humility, one cannot appreciate the success of another in life. This is the major reason why arrogant people do not excel in life. That is why the Bible says in 1 Peter 5:5, “Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Learn to appreciate someone’s success in life!

Daily Tip: Every Christian should put on the garment of humility and learn to appreciate other people’s success in life. Shalom!

Golden Text: When he humbled himself, the wrath of the Lord turned from him, so as not to destroy him completely; and things also went well in Judah (2 Chronicles 12:12).
