Romans 12:16 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.
Philippians 2::5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Confusion within the church is very unsettling because that is not God's will. Much confusion comes when people have different ideas about how to do things and how things should be. If we will all conform our thoughts to the mind of Christ the confusion will go away.
Some people strive for position and try to rise above others and in doing so they seem to cater to others in loftier positions. We can never rise higher by trying to pull ourselves up. If we lift up those who are not as strong, eventually they will push us up.
As for the last part of the verse, I guess as I grow older I begin to realize just how dumb and how little I really know.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
