The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Be Humble And Modest

“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3 (NASB)
Believers should do everything they do with a desire to maintain the truth and glorify God in all things. But how often this Christian rule is violated, even by born again people.
Many times, Christians attempt to outdo each other, to see which can be most important. Pride enters the heart, and the glory that should be given to Christ is given to man instead.
We should have no vain opinions about our own ability and talents. Whatever we do, if we do it through “selfishness or empty conceit,” desiring honor and praise of men; if we do it to attract attention and make ourselves look important–we are sinning.
True believers are to do everything to the glory of God. We are to be modest and humble. We are not to perform our duties with the thought in mind that we want to receive due recognition of men for what we do. It is God who recognizes the right kind of stewardship and rewards us for the same.
