Instead of looking out for ourselves, we are to be looking out for everyone else, and they are to look out for us. Just as Jesus has done for us. When a believer takes this attitude into a marriage, the entire relationship changes. It becomes a relationship that grows and fosters strength when the storms of life come. Now again, this principle is essential in the crown jewel of God’s relationships…but it is also very applicable in every relationship. If you want friends…submit to mutual bonding and learning of each other. You want great employees…submit to learning that the employee is and work within the boundaries of your corporate vision to develop a mutual relationship of submission.
Jesus was asked what the greatest command was and He said in Matthew 22:37-40 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
