Others first

Updated: Jun 11

Although Caleb was the first to receive his inheritance, Joshua chose his inheritance only after all of the tribes of Israel had received theirs. What a wonderful example of spiritual leadership!

Josh. 19:49-50 “When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them: According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.”

LESSON - Mk. 9:35 “And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.”

The principle of “others first” is a concept lost in this generation of social media and rampant “meism” culture. Jesus provided the greatest example of all when the Creator of the universe knelt humbly to wash His disciples feet and then died on the cross to save them from their sin. Imagine living a life with no thought of one’s self. To give your life in the service of God and others. If we want to be like Christ, we must learn to put others first!
