New Living Translation (NLT)
Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.
You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
Jesus is the true model of a servant. He had every right to be served by man, but He chose to give His time, wisdom, energy, and ultimately His life so that others could become part of God’s family and live fulfilling lives. The goal of every believer is to live like Jesus and share His love. The greatest way in which this mission is achieved is by following the example of the Life Jesus lived.
You must willingly give up your own rights and interests and dedicate your time, resources and energy for the benefit of meeting the needs of others. A sense of peace and belonging happens when you serve others. Service builds community and trust, and it brings a deeper sense of belonging. This is the lifestyle that Jesus desires to live.
