The CEO of a frozen treats franchise went undercover on the television series Undercover Boss, donning a cashier’s uniform. Working at one of the franchise’s stores, her wig and makeup disguised her identity as she became the “new” employee. Her goal was to see how things were really working from the inside and on the ground. Based on her observations, she was able to solve some of the issues the store was facing.

Jesus took on a “humble position” to solve our issues. He became human—walking the earth, teaching us about God, and ultimately dying “on a cross” for our sins (Philippians 2:8). This sacrifice exposed Christ’s humility as He obediently gave His life as our sin offering. He walked the earth as a man and experienced what we experience—from ground level.

As believers in Jesus, we’re called to have the “same attitude” as our Savior especially in our relationships with other believers (v. 5). God helps us to clothe ourselves in humility and adopt the mindset of Christ (v. 3). He prompts us to live as servants ready to meet others’ needs and willing to lend a helping hand. As God leads us to humbly love others, we’re in a better position to serve them and to compassionately seek solutions to the issues they face.

Hi there, and welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. Our reading, titled Putting on Humility, was written by Katira Patton. The CEO of a frozen treats franchise went undercover on the television series Undercover Boss, donning a cashier's uniform. Working at one of the franchise's stores, her wig and makeup disguised her identity as she became the new employee. Her goal was to see how things were really working from the inside and on the ground.

Based on her observations, she was able to solve some of the issues the store was facing. Jesus took on a humble position to solve our issues. He became human, walking the earth, teaching us about God, and ultimately dying on a cross for our sins. This sacrifice exposed Christ's humility as He obediently gave His life as our sin offering.

He walked the earth as a man and experienced what we experience from ground level. As believers in Jesus, we're called to have the same attitude as our Savior, especially in our relationships with other believers. God helps us to clothe ourselves in humility and adopt the mindset of Christ. He prompts us to live as servants ready to meet others' needs and willing to lend a helping hand. As God leads us to humbly love others, we're in a better position to serve them and to compassionately seek solutions to the issues they face. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Philippians 2, verses 5-11.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus, who being in very nature 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 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, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Let's pray. Father, we thank You for the sacrifice Jesus made for us. Please give us the same sacrificial mindset of Christ as we humbly serve our brothers and sisters. Thank You, Lord. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Toni Collyer, and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
