Describe Paul's teaching on humility as contained in his letter to the Philipians

In Paul’s letter to the Philippians, Paul urges the Christians to
possess a sense of love, sharing in the spirit, affection and sympathy in order
to complete the joy of being Christians by living in harmony with one another.
The christians are warned to desist from any act of selfishness and
conceit but should show humility. This means they should put others first
before themselves. They should imitate Jesus Christ whose humility should be a
model for them. Jesus was in form of God, but did not equate himself with God.
Instead, he humbled himself as a servant, up to the point of death. As a result
of Jesus’ humility, God highly exalted him both in heaven and on earth.
Therefore, Jesus is Lord to the glory of the father.
