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 unto 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 confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I do my best to follow Your example, and look not only to my own interests, but also to the interests of others. I use this guideline in my home, at work, with church activities and wherever else You may find me. Because my Lord was a servant on earth, I must be a servant also. It is a difficult path at times, especially when I am in need of some help myself, and there seems to be none forthcoming. However, You are my help. I am Your humble servant at all costs; for Your name alone on my knees I bow and my tongue confesses daily you are Christ the Lord.
