Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.
Romans 12:3 (NLT)

Be honest in your evaluation of yourself. This is a good word.

And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message.
John 13:14-16 (NLT)

Let us continually be motivated by service and humility, treating others as greater than ourselves. Jesus gave us many examples of how to do this. Let us observe and follow His lead.

They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long,

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It has been already in the ages before us.
Ecclesiastes 1:9,10 (ESV)

When we find ourselves in situations where our self-importance blinds our perspective of the above, let’s take a step back, move away from vanity and into a humble posture.

If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.
John 13:14,15 (ESV)

This is how we should treat one another. Consider this as you respond to those around you.

Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. They were totally amazed, for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves. Their hearts were too hard to take it in.
Mark 6:51,52 (NLT)

It is so easy to be jaded and arrogant, thinking surely God isn’t moving around us. Let us pray that our hearts would be soft and able to discern when God is doing something in our midst!

…and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 18:3,4 (NASB)

Take notice of the innocence, humility and wonder that a child has, and make every effort to mimic that.

How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Luke 6:42 (NIV)

By the time you get the plank out of your own eye, you’ll realize the importance of facing your own issues and letting God address those of the people around you.
