“Work toward unity, live in harmony; don’t be snooty; make friends with humble people. Don’t think you’re better or smarter than them; you’re not.” Rom 12:16
How do you ‘work toward unity and live in harmony’ with each other? Well, you don’t seek the company and the approval of the high and mighty, the rich and famous. You make friends with working people; you enjoy the company of regular people. You don’t think you’re smarter or better than them; you’re not.
How ‘upside-down’ can you get? The world says, “Get rich, get famous, get power, get control.” God says, “Humble yourself, be like Jesus; be an obedient servant.” If you want to have a close, personal relationship with Me and with others, quit thinking you’re smarter and better than other people, especially the tired, the poor, the uneducated, those who are struggling. Don’t just try to help them ‘from above’; make friends with them where they are. Change your attitude about what’s important! Then you can have unity and harmony with God, with others, and with yourSELF.
