St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 16

"Look to the interests of others." (Philippians 2: 4)

The radical nature of the Christian way is that it puts others before self and God before all. It overturns the self-centred careerism and ambition that motivates so much of what we do. When we forget ourselves in service of others we find ourselves rewarded and discover a depth and richness to life which we didn't know before.

Gracious God, take from us competitiveness and conceit, that we may be transformed into a generous people, serving others and putting their needs before our own. Amen.
