10/3/19: Philippians 4:1-23; Psalm 75:1-10; Proverbs 24:17-20
Today’s reading contains two sets of verses that are mine (and maybe your) favorites. Thees are vv. 6-7 and vv. 8-9. Today another passage blessed me:
Philippians 4: 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
I return to a point we discussed several weeks ago. Paul is not instructing us to never seek to change our circumstances. He is, simply, letting us know that there is no situation, no circumstance that prevent us from being blessed.
