Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit

“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:3-4‬ ‭NASB‬‬

We are called to walk in humility and love. The world that we live in focuses everything on seeking the selfish desires of the sinful nature. But God and His kingdom is focused on seeking God and His will. 

When we simply walk in obedience to the Holy Spirit we will naturally walk in love and humility. Obedience is not based on our strength or ability. Being able to walk in obedience is based upon abiding in the Lord and following the leading of the Holy Spirit.
