Beware of Using Titles

Jesus forbid us from wearing titles in the church, such as Rabbi, Father, and Teacher or Doctor (Matthew 23:8-10).
Why do some desire to have such titles? It makes them think they are important and above others. However, should that spirit prevail among disciples of Christ?
If He could come down from heaven, live in despised Nazareth, work as a carpenter, and not build an earthly empire, who are we to think we can place ourselves above others?
