A man of great power, is equal to slaves. Christ becomes humble, not because of outside forces, but because he wants to. He wills it. Christ is the son of god and an equal to man.
The beginning of the passage starts off with “Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself”. Stop. Pause for a minute, or a second, and reflect. Think. What does it mean to be humble? How am I humble?
Do we look down upon people in our society? Perhaps, people who aren’t as well off as we are. Do you look down upon them and say “they did this to themselves” and ignore their pleas? Truth be told, some of us have seen people in need and turned away. Be humble, see others not as lower than you, but as equals. Smile with them, laugh with them, console them. See each other as brothers and sisters, and not as different.
