Humble self?

Matthew 23:12 "And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted."

MATTHEW 23:10-12

In Romans 12:10 we are admonished to desire the welfare of others more than our own; to like others better than ourselves. That is an awesome command that is only obtainable through God's supernatural love. If this very simple, yet very profound truth could be understood and applied, then strife would cease (Prov. 13:10).

{ Yes, That means we get our eyes off ourself so that pride and all self-centeredness would vanish and people could learn to love their neighbors as themselves! WOW, all strife could be gone and peace would be the work of the day!}

The world would see Christianity as never before, and we would discover the true joy that comes from serving someone besides ourselves.

There is much confusion today on the subject of love because we have only one English word (love) to describe a broad aspect of meanings.
For example, if I said, "I love my wife, I love my Mother, I love apple pie, and I love my dog," obviously I am not talking about love in the same degree of definition.

God's type of love; the highest kind of love, is AGAPE. This is when we seek the welfare or betterment of others even when we don't feel affection. AGAPE love does not come from one's feelings. Jesus displayed this AGAPE kind of love by going to the cross and dying for us even though He didn't feel like dying. Jesus sought the betterment of you and me, regardless of His feelings.

We, too, can AGAPE love our enemies even though we don't have a warm feeling of affection for them. If they are hungry we can feed them; if they are thirsty we can give them a drink. We can choose to seek the betterment and welfare of others regardless of how we feel.

If anyone becomes a servant and humbles himself with the motive of being exalted, then he is not truly fulfilling Jesus' command. Jesus is teaching about a true, servant's heart, that loves others more than itself and will joyfully go without so that someone else may prosper.

{Not some form of false pride or accolade or popular acclaim!}
