Putting Others First
June 12, 2013
A mark of spiritual maturity is a willingness to sacrifice personal comfort in order to strengthen other believers. The Apostle Paul urges us to pursue activities that promote peace, and to behave in ways that build others up. Even though Paul recognized that he had a personal freedom in Christ, he didn’t consider his own rights or comforts as taking a greater priority over others. His concern was to lead others to Christian maturity. This is how Jesus related to his disciples.
“Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another. Romans 14:19″
