As parents, we endure brutal, blatant selfishness from our children. We are all selfish, of course. But children have no problem with it. They are shamelessly selfish and it’s our job to point out the problem without putting them to shame.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather in humility, value others above yourselves. – Philippians 2:3
I love this passage from Scripture because my kids all want the biggest cookie or the biggest piece of cake. They all want to press the elevator button and they all want to go first. This verse leaves no room for argument. Don’t be that way.
In fact, Philippians 2:3 hits the message so squarely on the nose, that it seemed appropriate to communicate the truth in humor – to insure a spirit of grace alongside conviction.
That’s the great Nickie Conley singing “shoob it up” on the intro – Nickie is one of Nashville’s great treasures, both as a vocalist and as a person. She also sang alto on Volume 2’s gospel choir.
I also got a gang of buddies to “politely shout” different lines during the chorus. That was so fun. I can’t wait for you all to hear it!
