You probably have some lingering pain or bitterness over being snubbed or disrespected. This story and message is about how to break free from the pain and chains of having to please, impress or get the credit in life.
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Philippians 2:5-8 (ESV)
If the only perfect man in history didn’t get any dignity when he first left this world, perhaps we should let go of our desire for “dignity”. Do you strive to get credit, significance and approval? Does it bug you when you don’t get what you think you “deserve”? Consider what Jesus, God Himself, gave up and endured so that we could be rescued and healed by His love.
If the only perfect man in history didn’t get any dignity when he first left this world, perhaps we should let go of our desire for dignity.
Have a talk with God and attempt to adequately thank Him for what Jesus sacrificed and endured for you. Think about each of the areas in life that you complain about. Decide to drop your self-centered quest for credit, dignity and praise. This is all about humility. As you humble yourself, you will treat others better. You’ll serve and lead like Jesus. You are and will be significant in His eyes…the true audience that matters.
