complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. - Philippians 2:2–4 (ESV) You deserve it. Treat yourself. You have to love yourself. Without self love you can't show others love. These are all phrases and ideas that show up around us. How we think of our self is important, but how should we think about ourselves? How does that effect how we think and ultimately treat those around us. This week we venture into Philippians chapter 2. In this chapter, Paul addresses one of his big concerns for this church - their unity in the middle of difficulty. How are they to respond to others that disagree or annoy them? How are they to love those that are hard to love? What gives them the motivation and power to do something that seem supernatural? I want to encourage you to take a few minutes to read through Philippians 2. Side-by-side in this chapter are practical commands and mountain top theology. As we unfold it, we will see how they are vitally connected.
