Out of Egotism…..

Do nothing out of contentiousness or out of egotism, but with humility consider others superior to you, as you look out not only for your own interests, but also for the interests of others.
================================
According to Philippians 2:3, we should do “nothing out of contentiousness or out of egotism, but with lowliness of mind considering that the others are superior.” How are we progressing in this regard? Each person has weaknesses and strengths. If in the past we were quick to note others’ weak points, have we progressed, no longer expecting them to be almost “perfect”? (James 3:2) Now, more so than before, are we able to see—even look for—ways in which others are superior? ‘I must admit that this sister is superior to me in being patient.’ ‘That one reflects a more optimistic faith.’ ‘Frankly, he is a better teacher than I am.’ ‘She is superior in controlling her temper.’ Perhaps some Colossians needed to progress in this regard. Do we?
