Greener grasses...

"If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others (Phil.2:1-4)"

Read it again.
Think about it.

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility"
Humility: the quality or condition of being humble; modest opinion or estimate of one's own importance, rank, etc.

Do not base your actions on the weight of your personal gains, act not out of spite for others nor for superficial gloating rights, act out of something bigger than you, be guided by something more important than the trivial, the vain, the vogue, the mainstream. Act of out selfless love for man.

I thought about this on my bike ride today.


  1. What beautiful thoughts to have on your bike ride! Hope all is going well with you sweetheart!!hughugs

  2. "To lose yourself, as if you no longer existed, to cease completely to experience yourself, to reduce yourself to nothing is not a human sentiment but a divine experience" - Bernard of Clairvaux
