“It’s time for you to invest in someone other than yourself. You need to put aside your own needs for a while and inquire about the needs of someone around you. If you really want to learn how to love like Jesus loves, find someone you don’t like or someone who has done you wrong and invest in that person. Make plans for him to prosper. Pray that he be blessed. Give a series of good gifts to him, especially if he does not need them. Pray for him on a continual basis. You get the idea. Jesus died for those who spat on Him at the cross. He even blessed them and asked for forgiveness on their behalf. You have trouble getting your eyes off of yourself. How Christ-like is that?”
I Cor. 13:5-7 AMP
5) It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
6) It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
7) Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].
Php 2:3-7 NIV
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.
5) Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
6) Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7) but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
Help me to be like You, Jesus,
