The sin called self-glorification

Self-glorification seems to be the goal of many, to emulate yourself, to make yourself seem special, important, rewarded. This may appear right, but it is not. It is actually a type of selfishness.
In the last month, we were introduced to two individuals that practice self-glorification.
The first was a doctor in New York City, now hospitalized with Ebola.
The second a nurse, that lives in Maine and refused to take a three-week vacation in her home.
Both have done special acts, but their attitude of selfish behavior shows whom they were really doing these deeds for, themselves. Not those sick people or for God.
Self-glorification is a sin. True humility would have these people not questioning, but listening and respecting their neighbors, which is everyone else in this nation.
