It may be hard for you to believe, but you are not the only person who has an opinion and who knows something. Finally, this leader had heard enough ofA them and kindly spoke up, tellingA them to be quiet so other people could express themselves.
As you're looking around the room at the other leaders, you realized they were all breathing a sigh of relief that someone had finally told that person to be quiet. But in their efforts to proveA their worth in the sight of those other leaders, they nearly took over the discussion, making it appear as if they wanted to a€?hoga€? the whole conversation.
TheA word a€?strifea€? is the Greek word eritheia, which is the picture of a person who is jockeying for some kind of position.
This is a person who is trying to make himself look powerful, insightful, or significant in the sight of other people. This is an interesting Greek mixture of concepts that describes the utter futility of such jockeyingA and positioning.


Kenos describes something that isA hollow or empty, and the word doxas is the word for glory. The first part of theA word is the Greek wordA tapeinos, which describes something that is lowly, humble, or base.
It suggests a person who is modest,A unpretentious, and a€?without airsa€? about himself, even if he knows that he is more intelligent,A gifted, or talented than others.
Rather than incessantly talk and a€?hoga€? every conversation, we must learn to make room for the gifts that lieA resident in other people.
I am truly repentant for giving people the impression that I thought I was the only one in the group with something worthy to say. Forgive me for being so self-absorbed and for not recognizing the other outstanding people with gifts, talents, and ideas that were just as valuable as my own. Because they are just as important as I am, I always give them time to express themselves and to let their gifts function as God intends.


I am a part of a God-gifted group, and every member is filled with gifts and ideas that I need. Do you treat people like they are valuable, unique creations of God who deserve the highest respect? Or have you inadvertently focused only on yourself, giving others the impression that you think you are the only one who has something to contribute?A 2. Have you ever had to work with someone who a€?hoggeda€? every conversation and didna€™t give anyone else an opportunity to express himself?
As you're looking around the room at the other leaders, you realized they were all breathing a sigh of relief that someone had finally told that person to be quiet.
