BIBLE READING: Philippians 2:1-4
John Stockton, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash. Any idea what these 3 guys have in common? Of course, they’re the All-Time Assist Leaders in the National Basketball Association. If you watch basketball, even a little bit, then you probably know the names of guys like Kareem Abdul-Jabaar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan. They are the all-time scoring leaders. But, the assist guys seem to always be forgotten. They are the ones in the background who are passing the ball to the scorers and letting them have the points, the glory, and the limelight.
In a lot of ways, love is like being a good assists-person by always being willing to look out for the interests of others, and putting their interests first. The kids tell us in VBS all the time that “Love is something if you give it away, give it away, give it away. Love is something if you give it away. You’ll end up having more.”
Application: How have you “given love away” this week?
