BIBLE READING: Philippians 2:1-11
Do you ever listen to WIIFM? At first glance, these letters look like a radio station’s call sign. What it really stands for is, “What’s In It For Me?” Like any true radio station, it has a catchy slogan: “At WIIFM, it’s all you, all the time!” It is part of human nature to be selfish because we regard to our own interests over the interests of others. But when we give our lives over to Christ, we need to delete that station from our list. Instead of looking our for our own interests, Paul teaches us to have the mindset of Jesus when he says, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interest of others” (Philippians 2:4). It isn’t easy for us to understand why Christ gave up heaven to come to earth and offer us salvation. He left a home in heaven where angels tended to His every need an praised His name, only to come to a world that hated Him, mistreated Him, and ultimately killed Him.
Application: Let’s all strive to have the mindset of Christ!
