Worldview vs Biblical view pt 8

     How do you look at things; through a worldview or a Biblical view?   The world these days seems to be a self-serve, self-centered place.  Everybody wants to look out for number one.  The world says that you have to be on top of everyone else to be important. You have to be the big cheese, the head honcho.  Being number one is what matters most, because everyone is out to serve the top dog.  We all want to be served, but few want to be the ones to serve.
     The Bible tells us that anywhere "self-seeking exists...evil" will be found (James 3:16).  God says that serving others is what it's all about.  Jesus was all about service.  He wanted to take care of everyone He came in contact with during His earthly ministry.  He tells us that nothing should be done "through selfish ambition" but in "lowliness of mind" and that we should all "esteem others" better than ourselves (Philippians 2:3).
     Jesus also tells us that even He "did not come to be served, but to serve" (Mark 10:45).  If the King of all kings, God's One and Only Son, can serve others, shouldn't we, as "joint-heirs with Christ" be willing to do the same (Romans 8:17).
     Take time to pray and ask God to give you a willing heart to serve.
