How are you, really?

“Don’t be concerned only about your own interests, but also be concerned about the interests of others”

Philippians 2:4 (God’s Word Translation)

Sometimes we get so self-consumed that we miss out on a life of significance and blessing. When we take the time and effort to care about the needs of others, God will use that as an open door to invade our lives. It’s almost as if the more we look to help others, the more He will take care of us.

There’s a saying that also helps motivate an others-oriented mentality; “Blessing shared, double the blessing. Burden shared, half the burden”. Even watch our conversation. Do we only talk about ourselves, or do we ask caring questions of others?


Heavenly Father, give  me the strength to open the door to Your blessings and care by being ‘concerned about the interests of others’. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
