As believers, we should have an attitude that enables us to give up our rights for the good of others- in order to serve others. If we say we follow Christ we must also say we want to live as he lived, we should develop his attitude of humble service, even when we are not likely to get recognition for our efforts.
When we feel the pain of our sacrifice- we know that we are really giving up something important.
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. -Philippians 2:3-4
