Getting Along

January 3, 2013

I love being with people . . . most of the time. There is a special joy that resonates in our hearts when we are with people we enjoy. But unfortunately we are not always with those we like to be around. Sometimes people can be prickly, which may be why someone has said, “The more I get to know people, the more I love my dog!” When we don’t find joy in a relationship, we tend to blame the other person; then we excuse ourselves as we exit to be with people we like.

The apostle Paul asks us to lovingly engage with our brothers and sisters in Christ. In fact, he calls all of us to be “of one accord,” to look out “for the interests of others,” and to “let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 2:2-5). Think about it. Jesus gave up His own prerogatives and privileges for us; He chose to live as a servant and paid the ultimate sacrifice that He might bring us into a joy-filled relationship with Him (see Heb. 12:2). And He did all that in spite of our prickliness (see Rom. 5:8).

So next time you are with someone who is not easy to get along with, ask Jesus to help you find a way to extend His love. In time, you might be surprised by how God can change your attitude about people.

Lord, thank You that while I was still offensive to You,
You saved me with Your sacrificial love. Give me the
same courage and grace to extend to others the love
that You have so graciously extended to me.
The key to getting along with others
is having the mind of Christ.

Read: Philippians 2:1-11

Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love. —Philippians 2:2
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 7-9; Matthew 3

The number of hamburgers the McDonald’s
fast-food chain has sold is 12 times
the world's total population.

There are more than 700 species of plants
that grow in the United States that have been
identified as dangerous if eaten.
Among them are some that are commonly favored by gardeners:
buttercups, daffodils, lily of the valley,
sweet peas, oleander, azalea, bleeding heart,
delphinium, and rhododendron.

Coined in the early 1980s, the slang term “rock jock”
is a mountaineering enthusiast..

When Elizabeth I of Russia died in 1762,
15,000 dresses were found in her closets.
She used to change what she was wearing two
and even three times an evening.

America purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867
for $7,200,000 — about 2 cents an acre.
