Good Evening Saints!!~~
I pray for you daily as we push into relevant life with Father.
Paul’s life is a beautiful example of focusing on others ALL the time. As he wrote his letter to the church at Philippi, he was chained up in prison, far away from every possible comfort. While he had many prime opportunities to write and complain about the conditions of his jail cell, or the disgusting food that was occasionally thrown to him, or the fresh collection of bruises from his guards, he chose instead to encourage his readers – reminding them to put everyone else before themselves. His perspective is a rare and very valuable one.
-When we are feeling imprisoned by whatever life has handed us, how often do we choose to encourage those around us, instead of venting and complaining about our own situation? How do we show that the needs of those around us are more important than our own?
-Pray that God would give you a new perspective on your surroundings – and that you would begin choosing to put your friends and family before yourself.
