http://bible.com/1/1pe.5.6.kjv Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
So many asserting themselves, by that I mean, pushing themselves to the forefront, rather than allowing God to give favor, prominence and promotion.
This is fleshly, carnal, and not the way of God. They, ultimately, will become divisive in their need for recognition.
We should learn to beware of such and, rather, embrace the humble servant hearted among us.
