In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
- Philippians 2:5-8
In Philippians 2:5-8, the mind of Christ, is an attitude that says, “I cannot keep my privileges for myself, I must use them for others; and to do this, I will gladly lay them aside and pay whatever price is necessary.”
It’s been said that “If you want to find out what a worker is really like, don’t give him responsibilities— give him privileges”.
Most people can handle responsibilities if you pay them enough, but it takes a real leader to handle privileges.
A leader will use his privileges to help others but a lesser man will use privileges to promote himself.”
Jesus used His heavenly privileges for the sake of others—for our sake.
