Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble.
A man in India named KA Ranjith strapped on his motorcycle helmet and roared off to St. Mary’s High School in Kandanad, where he works as a teacher. When he arrived and pulled his helmet off, he saw a venomous snake known as a common krait was coiled inside and had joined him for the seven-mile ride. Ranjith rushed to the local hospital where doctors determined he hadn’t been bitten, but nonetheless Ranjith decided to destroy his helmet in a fire and replace it.
The old serpent, the devil, is always trying to get into our mind. He wants us to set our mind on high things—that is, to be filled with pride, desire, and vainglorious ambition. The Bible says, “But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3).
God wants our mind to be humble, concerned about others, and willing to associate with the needy. As we allow Him to mold our life, we’re able to live a life of meekness.
Meekness and lowliness of heart should be the distinguishing feature of the disciple. Andrew Murray
