Philippians 2:3

Today's Bible Verse:
Philippians 2:3
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. (NIV)
* Today's Inspiring Thought: Consider Others Better Than Yourself
"The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good." Many people attribute this quote to Samuel Johnson, but there's no evidence of it in his writings. Others give credit to Ann Landers. It doesn't really matter who said it, though, the idea is biblical.
I won't mention names, but I've observed some Christian leaders who ignore the true servants in the body of Christ, while giving extra attention and special treatment to their wealthy, influential, and "famous" brothers and sisters. When I see this happening, it makes me lose all respect for that person as a spiritual leader. Even more, it makes me pray I never fall into that trap.
* Mary Fairchild Guide to Christianity
