Do 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:
Arrogance and pride are things that do not reflect the word of God. Doing things for vainglory goes directly against the Lord's teachings. Humility, patience, and gentleness are in line with how Jesus lived His life. Use his life and death as a model, because that is exactly the Lord intended it to be.
Forgive me Father, for I have selfishly demanded recognition for the good deeds that I have done. I wish that I can selfishly do things that benefit others because it truly makes me feel better, not because I will get acclaim from others. Holy Lord, forgive me for these transgressions and help me to learn from these mistakes in the future. I ask that you aid me in my progress, along with the path to righteousness. Amen.
