Romans 12:10 ” Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

Later in the Bible, the Apostle Paul admonished the Church in Philippi to, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” (Philippians 2:3)  This has to be one of the toughest things to do given mankind’s self-centered, egotistic nature.   Instead of seeking out our own 15 minutes of fame, we need to be trying to outdo one another in showing honor.  Rather than demanding respect, we need to be recognizing others and praising them for important work they’re doing.  Vanity looks for fame and glory, while humility moves “self”  off the throne as we esteem others.
