Philippians 2:3-9 says:
3When you do things, don't let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble and give more honor to other people than to yourselves. 4Don't be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of other people, too.
5In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus. 6Christ himself was like God in everything. Christ was equal with God. But Christ did not think that being equal with God was something that he must keep. 7He gave up his place with God and agreed to be like a servant. He was born to be a man and became like a servant. 8And when he was living as a man, he humbled himself by being fully obedient to God. He obeyed even when that caused him to die. And he died on a cross. 9Christ obeyed God, so God raised Christ to the most important place. God made the name of Christ greater than every other name. (Easy-to-Read Version)
King James Version: 3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
