Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
and whoever wants to be first must be your slave,
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."Two Blind Men Receive Sight
Matthew 20:26-28

and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight
Mark 10:43-45
 
But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.
For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
Luke 22:26-27
 
When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them.
"You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am.
Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet.
I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
John 13:12-15
 
We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
Romans 15:1
 
What then is my reward? Just this: that in preaching the gospel I may offer it free of charge, and so not make use of my rights in preaching it.
Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.
To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law.
To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law.
To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.
1 Corinthians 9:18-22
 
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.
1 Corinthians 10:24
 
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9
 
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.Not Circumcision but a New Creation
Galatians 6:10
 
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death, even death on a cross!
Philippians 2:5-8
