Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.”
-It is salient to make the other person feel important for their good & the good of others. Self interest should be considered in moderation & special important given to others. Even Christ did not please Himself, He sought not his own pleasure, ease & profit but He did it for all mankind for the glory & honour of the Father. Apostle Paul in Eph 4:31-32, advocates for the work of edification by putting away all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamour & evil speaking, but sharing in kindness, tenderness, love & forgiveness just as Christ forgave us. We thereby share Gods love, peace & mercy with one another, at the same time edifying Christ for we are one in Him.
Oh Lord our Father, help us to find unity with each other, to live together by comforting & encouraging one another in Your love. Illuminate in us Your light that leads the world to you. Teach us to be good role models to the people around us, so that when they see Your love in us, they would want to know You more & more. Amen
