A church once held a meeting to discuss some plans for the future. Someone suggested that the church buy a chandelier. One man angrily took exception to this idea. He exclaimed, “We do not need a chandelier! First of all, there isn’t enough money in the budget. Second, nobody here even knows how to play one of those things. And finally, what we really need around here is more lighting!”
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”—Philippians 2:3-4.
