The verse that saved my week rang loud and strong from the Craig’s lips last Sunday.
3Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Philippians 2:3,4 (ESV)
Every Thursday morning I meet with my administrators. Every Thursday morning I dread it. Every Thursday morning I sit, listen, nod, and hold all my negative thoughts inside.
This last Thursday, I read these verses before the meeting.
What a difference.
In the meeting, I actually listened with an open mind. We even had a short conversation about things unrelated to work. I looked for ways to be a blessing.
Not only did the meeting seem almost enjoyable, the rest of my day did too.
As you can see, I’m a slow learner, but I’m starting to catch on to some of the basics.
