Daily Bible Verse - 1/19/2008 - Romans 12:15-16

NIV Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
KJV Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
NASB Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.
Romans 12:15-16

Our tendency is to be jealous when others rejoice, and to pass by when they mourn. God's way is to enter into the joys and sorrows of those around us.

Did you know?
In no way should you be conceited, or in any respect consider yourself better than fellow believers. Instead, God wants you to accept and embrace every member of the body of Christ: "Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others" (Phil. 2:4).

I like to think this is god way of telling us to live outside the box. Not just to think of our own situation but to refect on everyone that surrounds you. like love thy neighbor as thy self, and do unto other as you would have them to you. GOD is Love!
