‘Regard others as better than yourselves’

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness.

- Philippians 2:3-7

I read this verse today while scanning the sojourners blog and it 'hit me' again. You see, I have a lot of writing and corresponding to do today and, I realize the my attitude aint a whole like like Jesus'. Sometimes I feel like I've taken on the 'role of a slave' -- but can I really take on the 'attitude of a slave'?

I know I need to get my 'tude' adjusted before I start my writing.

Comments anyone?
