Get off your high horse often enough that others too can ride, being willing to walk and follow. Esteem every person greater than oneself.

When I look at churches ,now a days,they conduct a lot of competitions like musical competitions,speeches,quizzes etc etc and rank people 1,2,3 etc.In the light of Phil 2:3 they are all vain glories.These competitions are not producing fruit of spirit rather work of flesh
