Do nothing out of selfish ambition

~Friday for Friends~

"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 (NIV)

Hard couple of verses. It is so easy to focus only on ourselves, to care only about our own successes and failures. But we are supposed to put God first and others second, no matter how overused that phrase might sound. We are to imitate what Christ has already done (Philippians 2:5-11). 

So what can you do today for others?
