Monday, September 17

With humility consider others superior to you.—Phil. 2:3.


We can show kindness to newcomers from a foreign background by warmly greeting them at the Kingdom Hall. We may have noticed that new immigrants are sometimes shy and stay by themselves. Because of their upbringing or social status, they may feel inferior to those of another race or nationality. So we should take the initiative to show a warm and sincere interest in them. If available in your language, the JW Language app can help you learn how to greet newcomers in their mother tongue. (Phil. 2:4) You may feel awkward about approaching those from another culture. To overcome such feelings, you might tell them something about yourself. You may soon realize that you have more things in common than you have differences—real or imagined—and that each culture has its own strengths and weaknesses. w16.10 1:13, 14

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

I like the first part of that scripture, it shows that contentiousness and egotism can show a lack of humility. 


We can become contentious,  argumentative and not think we are egotistical or we may be egotistical and not think we are contentious,  yet both show a lack of humility.
