Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in
lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you
look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
As shared in the post “Aim to Please God Only” Paul, Silas, and
Timothy set out to share the Gospel message not for their own interest but for
the interest of the new Christians. They took a risk of being persecuted but
were courageous and kind to stand in the Light to be seen as who they were with
their main ambition being to encourage, comfort, and urge the new Christians to
live worthy lives.
