Philippians 2:1-7 Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, 2 make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. 3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.”
Food for Thought:
We are self-centered creatures. We are always looking to our needs. Help us to be ever mindful of the needs of others.
Creator God, you call us to love and serve you with body, mind, and spirit through loving your creation and all of our brothers and sisters. Open our hearts in compassion to address the needs of those around us. Amen.
