MacArthur sums it up well: God hates pride and honors humility...
The path then to glory in God’s Kingdom is through humble sacrifice, seeing yourself as a servant and a slave and your model is Christ and He was lifted up and exalted by His Father and given a name above every name and the names that come under Him in the glory to come will be the names of those who have served and sacrificed and deemed by God to be at the highest level.
The path to greatness is not the world’s way, it’s God’s way. The world’s way works in the world. God’s way works in the Kingdom.
