In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus – Philippians 2v5
In doing life and relationships with others we can bring the junk of this world into our thinking and how we respond to others. Today’s verse says we are called to have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. This simply means think in the way that Jesus would. You probably remember the WWJD wrist bands, right? These wrist bands served to us as a reminder to ourselves of ‘what Jesus would do’ in different situations. But how about WWJT? What would Jesus think?
Next time you find yourself daydreaming, planning for future decisions and thinking about an individual in a certain way, remember to think as Jesus would think. This requires an intentional decision to think in a way Jesus would think, full of love, faith and hope. Thinking in the right way and having the mindset will help you do relationships the Jesus way!
