Dear Jesus,
In Romans 12:10, you tell us to be devoted to one another in brotherly love and to honor one another above ourselves. Please, LORD, will you help us do that today and help us start making it a habit to do it every day. Will you help us want to put other people first above ourselves and help us die to our selfish natures. Will you help us look for ways to bless other people the way that you bless us. We want to be all we can be for you. Thank you. We love you. Amen

Challenge: Sometimes it’s so easy to put others first, especially our family and friends whom we love. Other times, we know we should put others first, but it can be hard and we might not feel like it. Let’s be intentional about looking for ways that we can honor other people. Let’s take the time today to look for someone that we can bless, maybe with a quick phone call or e-mail or text, encouraging them and letting them know we value them. That may bless their day in a big way!
