Don’t always seek what is best for you…at the expense of another. Wow! That is powerful.
This is the next stage of love.
Let’s look at a few scriptures on this subject.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Romans 12:10
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thess. 5:11
Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 1 Peter 4:9
Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being. 1. Corinthians 10:24
As my friend recently shared, NOW is the time to prefer others. To put others before you. To resist selfishness and freely give love. There is no greater time to do this than when it is hard to do, as it was with her. God sees a heart like that, and it pleases Him.
Now is the season to go to the next stage of love. I am all in, how about you?
