INTRODUCING... Our "Seeds of Faith"

INTRODUCING... Our "Seeds of Faith"


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.

Philippians 2:3-4



Paul goes on to instruct the Philippians to have the same mindset as Jesus when relating to others, and he details just how humble Jesus was.

Selfish ambition can be understood as “motivation to elevate oneself or to put one’s own interests before another’s.”

Vain conceit means “excessive pride” or “self-esteem that has no foundation in reality” Therefore, doing nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit means not letting our actions be motivated by selfishness, pride, or one-upmanship.

When we understand the incredible sacrifice, grace, and mercy of God on our behalf, we realize that we have no use for pride. We need not focus solely on our own interests because we rest in our Savior. Rather than be motivated by selfishness or pride, we can be of one mind with fellow believers and put their interests before our own.





God, I just want to say thank you.

Thank you for your grace, thank you for your mercy and thank you for your sacrifice on my behalf. Help me to have a mindset like you when relating to others. You bless me daily, free of charge and it is my duty to bless others. Help me to be your hands and feet, and continue to guide me, as I strive to be more like you.

In Jesus Name,
