Isaiah 40:17…”Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.” This magnifies God’s love to the world. Although it is of such small account and value with him, for the redemption of it, he gave his only-begotten Son, John 3:16. Since we are to have the same mindset as that of Christ, we need to be careful to not focus our minds and hearts on worldly things. This is especially true of our relationships. Each person in our lives has been put there strategically by the Lord. We need to continually grow in our interest in the spiritual well-being of those around us. Do you care if those around you are growing in holiness? Paul’s first letter to the church at Corinth includes a command from God to do this with our fellow church members:
1 Corinthians 5:10-11
He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
