That phrase has been milling about in my head, as something minor happened and I found myself wanting to take offense at something awhile ago. I brought it to the Lord while standing before my closet looking for something to wear one morning and that is what He spoke to my heart.
I didn't like that.
I wanted to hear the Lord say something like, "Yeah, you're right." But I hopefully know Him well enough to know that He never thinks like that.
Still. Not considering myself is not an easy thing to do. I'm very good at considering myself and I wonder if you are too.
So tomorrow if someone offends you, or cuts you off, or just in general overlooks you, ask the Lord to help you not consider yourself. After all...
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."
I Corinthians 13:4-8
