Be devoted to one another in brotherly love;
give preference to one another in honor
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.
Honor one another above yourselves.
“He who toots his own horn plays in a very small band!”
A very selfish part of us wants all attention and appreciation to be focused on what we have done, sacrificed, and accomplished.
One of the signs of spiritual maturity that Paul lists here, however, is a devotion to others who are our fellow Christians.
This means that we genuinely rejoice when others are honored.
In fact, that we are even more interested in honoring others than in receiving honor ourselves.
▪︎ Thank God for surrounding you with so many godly and honorable people.
▪︎ Ask God to help you see ways each day how I can show them my love, admiration, and appreciation.
