Devoted

Devoted

Romans 12:10 provides us with a profound insight into the way we are called to live as followers of Christ.

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

This verse encapsulates the essence of Christian community and relationships, emphasizing the importance of love and honor in our interactions with others.

To be devoted to one another in love means to genuinely care for and prioritize the well-being of others. It calls us to go beyond mere surface-level interactions and to invest ourselves in the lives of those around us.

This devotion is rooted in selfless love, a love that seeks the good of others without seeking personal gain or recognition.

Furthermore, the command to honor one another above ourselves challenges our natural inclination toward self-centeredness and encourages us to treat others with respect and dignity. It invites us to value and affirm the worth of every individual, recognizing their inherent worth as children of God.

When we honor others, we demonstrate humility and a willingness to put their needs and interests before our own.

In a world that promotes selfishness and individualism, this verse reminds us of the transformative power of love and honor. It challenges us to cultivate a community marked by selfless devotion and genuine honor, where each person is valued and treated with dignity.

Strive to live out this command; contribute to the building of a community that reflects the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
