Excerpt from book "While They Were Sleeping" by Anne Arkins & Gary Harrell
(12 Character traits for moms to pray)

Humility is thinking more highly of others than yourself...

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)

Prayer Focus for your family:
Heavenly Father, You allowed Your only Son to humble Himself and become our servant. He did nothing out of selfish ambition or self-importance. May we likewise humbly consider others to be better than ourselves. Give us the sensitivity to see beyond our own interests to what is important for those around us.
