Love…vaunteth not itself and is not puffed up

Love does not boast of itself. Genuine love does not look for a way to exalt itself. We really need to guard our heart and make sure we have not placed ourselves on a lofty platform of superior rank compared to others. Do you view yourself as being better than others? More “holy” than others? Be honest. When we are spiritually arrogant, it will manifest itself in our words and deeds. Love is Christ-centered, not self-centered.

The perfect example of genuine love is Jesus Christ Himself. “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:5–8).
