A deaconess shouldn't think she's an elder or a deacon think he's an apostle, or a Levite think he's a priest or an angel think he's God, or children think they're the head of household or employees think they're the employer, but all must remain subject to the Word of God and maintain humility and grace and grow in our proper office, our God-given station in life, so help us God (Rom. 12:3).
