Re:Verse reading–Philippians 2:1-11 (day one)
“Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”–v 4.
It is the opposite of Charlottesville. The opposite of the new, nasty norm in contemporary American politics. Rather than look out for ourselves (our race, our political party) followers of Christ will look out for the interests of others. We will ask a different question. What is best for all parties? What is wise and fair for everyone involved?
Not an easy assignment, I agree. It requires time to hear each other. Time to consider opinions/feelings not my own. Even so, it is a better path. Learned from the “Prince of Peace”.
“A kingdom divided against itself will not stand” said the same Prince on another day. And no one should imagine that our nation will be the exception.
Want to build a church? Want to build a city? The Savior will teach us how.
