Philippians 2:3-11 – Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 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 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.
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, In humility count others more significant than yourself. Do all things for the Glory of God and not for your own glory. God is not pleased to see us motivated by competition and rivalry, God wants our meekness and humility even if we strive to move and work with Excellence. Our desire to do Excellence is our worship to God for God is a God of Excellence.
*Question: Are you always concerned about your interest, rather than the good of others?
