I pray and hope that we all look to the interests of others, not just ourselves and walk in humility.
Philippians 2:1-13 (NIV)
If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped, but made
Himself nothing, taking the very
nature of a servant
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and
became 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
every tongue confess that Jesus
Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed-not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence-continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.
