A Broader Vision

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

In Other Words
You can avoid being trapped by selfishness and vanity if you humbly do things that elevate others instead of yourself. Look after the interest of others as well as your own.

Small Bites

✓ Do nothing at the expense of others
✓ Honor others above yourself
