Emptied Himself

                                  Let each of you look

                               not to your own interests,

                            but to the interests of others. 

                            Let the same mind be in you

                           that was in Christ Jesus, who,

though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality

with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, 

taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And

                            being found in human form, 

                            he humbled himself and

                            became obedient to the point

                            of death—even death on a

                           cross.  Philippians 2: 4-8
