It’s been a while since I last posted a Sundayvotion. I have no excuse for doing that. Today, I would like to talk briefly about building each other up.
We see it in social media, people fighting over some issues. Their arguments are not going anywhere. None of them are willing to let go of their contentions.
Sometimes, we see a good post online and say, “aw, that’s really nice!” But no matter how wonderful the post is, we still see someone in the comment section saying something negative.
In elementary, learned that one of the negative traits of a Filipino is crab mentality. Meaning, just like the crabs, we have the tendency of pulling others down when we see them going up.
The word of God is telling us not to think this way. Instead, encourage one another and help build each other up. When we have this mentality, we will be happy to see others excel in the area that they’re good at. If we have this kind of mindset, we will not be jealous of what others have achieved. We will be contented with our lives and will not compare ourselves with others.
With God’s help, we can help build each other up and not tear each other down. And by God’s grace, we can all succeed together.
Have a blessed Sunday, everyone! ♥
God bless us all!
