of the same mind one toward another, not minding the high things, but with the lowly going along; become not wise in your own conceit;
- Youngs Literal Bible
12:16 Mind not high things - Desire not riches, honour, or the company of the great.
Ro 12:16 [Be] of the same mind one toward another. Let there be harmony; a spirit of concord. Mind not high things. Do not seek for official or social distinction. Obedience to this would eliminate caste from the church. But condescend to men of low estate. Instead of seeking pre-eminence, we are to walk in lowly spirit like our Savior. Be not wise in your own conceits. Conceited and opinionated as the result.
Bob Wickes's comment on 2012-02-04 16:24:46:
Romans 12:16 is some of the best advice ever given to mankind. It echoes our Lord's parable of the publican and the pharisee. The power of 12:16 has been lost on the youth and 20-30 somethings of today whose parents did not attend church or send their children to church. These people have an insufficient moral center which no amount of learned political correctness or secular humanism can correct. I fear for America as it courses along on a downward and Godless path.
