Philip. 2:3-4 (ESV)
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  [4] Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Followers of Jesus Christ are not called to greatness and fame and glory while we serve our Lord down here. We are called to humility and, as this text says, to consider others better than ourselves. We are called to follow Jesus. And what did He do? He made Himself nothing and became obedient to death. We talk much about “attempting great things for God” as we “expect great things from God”. Our trouble often is that we think we can define greatness and far too often it is about size and influence and power and being known and popular and … and … and … .

So, in celebration of those of us who desire fame and bigness and popularity I give you this wonderful commentary on the human condition by a very funny comedian.
