“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.”

Philippians 2:3‭-‬7 NASB

YHC has shared this passage before, but I feel strongly enough about its message to share again. I think this is a passage that we should read daily as a reminder. Think of the impact one can have by thinking of another person as more important than themselves. This could be as simple as letting someone merge infront of you at an on-ramp. Or perhaps wearing a mask despite your own convictions just to make someone else more comfortable. This year YHC has seen so much division associated with COVID-19. I would have thought that Christian’s would have been very willing to accept discomfort for the sake of someone else. I was wrong. Jesus showed us the ultimate example of humility and willingness to give preference to others by giving up His place in Heaven to come to this filthy, sin-covered earth to die. He knew that His death was the only way we would get a chance at paradise in Heaven. Think about this message the next time you encounter an opportunity to comply with someone else’s preference for their sake.

Everyone got through one full round plus a little extra.
