Looking Out for Others

Be Strong, Be Well — Wednesday, April 28, 2021

“All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being” (1 Corinthians 10:23–24).

“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Galatians 5:13–14).

“Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others” (Philippians 2:3–4).

How familiar we are with these passages! Is there ever a time or situation where these principles do not apply? Brethren, we are living in unusual times. We are being tested on every front. Some of this has put a strain on our Christian principles. However, there should never be a time to let our love and gracious treatment for one another wane and grow weak.

As we heard last Sunday, “in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart” (1 Peter 1:22). —Chris
