- Deliberately consider others better than myself
The Scripture tells us that if we want God to lift us up, we must first humble ourselves in His sight (James 4:10). But we can’t humble ourselves in God’s sight without humbling ourselves in the sight of other people. In fact, we are to actually consider them better than ourselves.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)
- Consider myself a servant
I need to see myself as a servant to others.
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. 2 Corinthians 4:5 (NIV)
People who have a servant spirit rarely have to struggle with pridefulness.
