ODM DAILY 30 August 2022 – THE 2019 FIFA FAIRPLAY AWARD:CONSIDER OTHERS-2
TOPIC: THE 2019 FIFA FAIRPLAY AWARD:CONSIDER OTHERS-2
Yesterday’s devotional ended with Philippians 2:4 summarized! It is simply saying: IN ALL YOU DO, PUT OTHERS FIRST! LEEDS UNITED club allowed their opponents to also climb to the ladder of qualification!
Determine to do uncommon, kind things today as you go out! Forgive that hurt! Be the first to greet someone today! We live in a selfish world, where consideration for others can sometimes become a rare finding.
The average human being is selfish and selfcentered. A.A.Milne reasoned it this way, “A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.” It is not every time you think you are right that you claim your right. There are some times when you let certain things go, just the way Leeds United did. It does not make you a lesser person than you are; rather it brings to the fore the higher virtue you carry.
Hebrews 10:24 says that such actions provoke unto love and good works. When Arsenal manager was interviewed after the game, he had this to say, “What happened, happened. English football is known around the world for its noble features.” Consideration for others is an act of nobility! As you go out today, consider someone. It is a noble act. It never goes unrewarded by your God. Peace!
PRAYER POINTS: Take any song of worship as led.
1. In your own words, pray about today’s word as led now.
2. A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference! That shall be my life as I go out today!
3. I release forgiveness to the following people now (mention them).
4. Oh Lord, You are a rewarder! Forgive my shortcomings and reward my past acts of kindness.
