- Wycliffe Bible
nothing in rivalry or vain-glory, but in humility of mind one another counting more excellent than yourselves --
- Youngs Literal Bible
2:3 Do nothing through contention - Which is inconsistent with your thinking the same thing. Or vainglory - Desire of praise, which is directly opposite to the love of God. But esteem each the others better than themselves - (For every one knows more evil of himself than he can of another:) Which is a glorious fruit of the Spirit, and an admirable help to your continuing of one soul.
Php 2:3 [Let] nothing [be done] through strife or vainglory. No party spirit or striving for human praise. In lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Instead of exalting himself, each is to exalt others in his esteem. He that is willing to serve is greatest.

When I look at churches ,now a days,they conduct a lot of competitions like musical competitions,speeches,quizzes etc etc and rank people 1,2,3 etc.In the light of Phil 2:3 they are all vain glories.These competitions are not producing fruit of spirit rather work of flesh
