Philippians 2:3-5 (NIV)

3Do 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:


Oh God! How can we ever be like Christ, who willingly gave up his position beside His Father and humbled himself to walk among men?  Who has done this for us, but Christ?  Help us, Holy Spirit, to likewise reject personal ambition and conceitedness.  Our journey is not about how wonderful we are, but about how worthy you are!  Help us to consider other’s interests above our own interests, knowing that you will always take care of us in every situation.
