A few days ago I watched as hummingbirds buzzed in for a landing at a feeder.
Many times one would stop drinking to chase others away, even though there were four spouts—no waiting.
Researching this, I discovered that hummingbirds are instinctively quite territorial.
But what about those of God’s creatures made in His image?
While the “default setting” for humans is Me/My/Mine, we do have a choice.
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others” (Philippians 2:3-4).
“Me First” is ultimately self-defeating.
But the servant mindset Jesus exemplified not only blesses others but ourselves as well.
