Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead.

Phillipians 2:3, the MOST Glaring lack in the "church" today
It is rarely seen
rarely modeled
on an individual level
I have never seen it on a corporate level
and the stench of it missing on a "people who run and are 'stars' of conferences"
level is gross (Heidi Baker being the exception)

It is missing in my life and that too is sin.
A couple versions of that verse to get the WHOLE meaning
Don't be selfish; don't live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. NLT
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. NIV
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; NASB
Don't push your way to the front; don't sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. The message

the lack of it shows the lack of love
and when love is lacking
God calls all the wonderful results and programs VOMIT!
