“It isn’t our position but our disposition that makes us happy.” (quote–Happiness Walks on Busy Feet)
(a better?) question for reflection (is not what is my status, place, position?)
…but rather: What is my disposition??
Scriptures for meditation & application:
“If possible, as far as it depends upon you, be peaceable with all men.”—Romans 12:18.
“As long as we have time favorable for it, let us work what is good toward all.”—Galatians 6:10.
“Doing nothing out of contentiousness or out of egotism, but with lowliness of mind considering that the others are superior to you.”—Philippians 2:3.
i really love this verse about God…
The Creator “has not given more consideration to the noble one than to the lowly one, for all of them are the work of his hands.”—Job 34:19.
excerpted reading: Is a Classless Society Really Possible?
Of course, equality does not mean total uniformity. Men and women, old and young, are all represented in this Christian organization that includes people from many, many racial, linguistic, national, and economic backgrounds. As individuals, they have different mental and physical abilities. But those differences do not make some superior or others inferior. Rather, such differences result in a delightful variety. Those Christians recognize that any talents they have are gifts from God and are no reason for feelings of superiority.
Class divisions are a result of man’s trying to govern himself instead of following God’s guidance. Soon, God’s Kingdom will take over the day-to-day rulership of this earth, and the result will be an end to man-made class distinctions, along with all other things that have caused suffering through the ages. Then, in a real sense, ‘the meek will inherit the earth.’ (Psalm 37:11) All reasons for boasting about one’s supposed superiority will be gone. Never again will social classes be allowed to divide the worldwide brotherhood of man.
