A couple of Sundays ago our preacher mentioned these words in a sermon and I was trying to make a decision.  These were the words I needed to help me act.  That's what the church is all about;  spurring one another on to good works, encouraging one another, and supporting one another.

What does it mean to be like Jesus?  It means to be a humble servant.  It means having tenderness and compassion - valuing others above yourself.

 FORGET trying to "PLAY GOD" and figure out everything on your own!  
Just TRUST that He will take care of it and "BE JESUS" to people!

Philippians 2 says it best:

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death
        even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

Have a blessed day, everyone!
