How To Balance Our Interests & Other's: Devotional Philippians 2:4-5

How do you look out for the interests of others?

Like yesterday's devotional we can see how the enemy can use this against us. Some women, like myself, struggle with the balance of looking out for the interests of others above our own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Yes, God wants us to rest in Him. He wants us to find healing in Him. He wants us to sit at His feet and learn wisdom and salvation from Him. That means we must cultivate a balance to this commandment.

Let's work today to look out for the interests of others after we have rested at His feet, soaking up His word, and filling our heart and mind with life giving proclamations about our worth, courage, strength, creativity, and faith in Him who heals, saves, and transforms for the blessings and calling that He has for our lives.

Let's pray: Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for this day. Thank You for Your love and mercy. Thank You that when we read the totality of Your word we see balance, mercy, rest, renewal, transformation, and blessings.

Lord Jesus please help us this day to cultivate the right balance of looking out for others, honoring others, serving others, and ourselves.

Lord Jesus we love You and praise You forever, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen!
