Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2: New King James Version
How much are you looking out for the interest of others?
How much do you mentor young people or those who are new Christians?
That does not mean we are to be judgmental or critical.
It means to teach them the correct way to behave like a Christian. It is not something that happens in a week or month. Sometimes it can take years.
We sometimes adopt wild cats. At first they are little tigers. It takes time to teach them to use the kitty litter and even more time to get them to trust us. After a while they are very affectionate and domesticated.
If that is true for wild cats how much more true is it for Christians that have only walked in the world?
People who won’t help others in trouble “because they got into trouble through their own fault” would probably not throw a lifeline to a drowning man until they learned whether he fell in through his own fault or not. Sydney J. Harris
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me to be a wise, gracious and meek mentor to all in Your holy family and to those who are open to becoming members of Your divine family. I humbly ask this in the name of He who sacrificed His holy place for my interest in becoming a member of Your sanctified family Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
