Bible Reading: Phillipians 2:1-15

3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

This is something I really try to do, but am not always good at. I am pretty selfish by nature. I do have the gift of compassion and I do try to put other's needs ahead of my own, especially if they are in pain or suffering, but the area I need to work on the most is putting my kid ahead of me. He usually has to do what I want all the time and I have to fit him into my agenda but I I would lie to do more stuff that is important to him instead of just making him do everything I want to, and go wherever I want to go. I need to work with him on school work and stuff instead of ignore him when i am too busy doing stuff for me, like chatting online. I also, at times, tend to do things that seem like I am doing good for someone, but I am really doing it to either get good attention for myself or because I am gonna get something in return.

14 Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe

I am a big complainer and arguer. I always have to have the last word. I would like to work on this and let my light shine in this world, so when people, especially those who are unsaved, look at me, they will see someone who really is different and stands out, because she lives by different standards, and isn't a hypocrite.

My Prayer: I pray I am better at putting my child's needs ahead of my own.
When God tells me to do something, even if it isn't something I understand, I pray I will do it joyfully and without complaining and arguing. I pray I can be like this with people who have authority over me too lie my bosses, or my church leaders.
