After Others

today's reading.
Philippians 2:1-11  So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy...

the blog.
A call for humility that comes through loving people is Paul's message in Philippians 2:1-11. He clearly instructs us to consider other people's needs and in so doing, to be willing to put our wants and needs aside. Then, to drive his point home, Paul puts Jesus' example before us.

So do you find Paul's instructions in Philippians 2:1-11 difficult or challenging? What helps you put other's interests before you own? Tami W.
