What If...

What if we all did this?  I mean really did it.

"Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory,
but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Look not every man on his own things, but every
man also on the things of others."  Philippians 2:3-4

What would life be like?  What would we be like?

It's impossible without the Lord.  It's only lasting with Him.

Pondering these things these days.  Letting it really sink in.
Just a little food for thought this Monday morning.

Hugs to you all!

I recently spent some time in those very verses, thinking about what they mean and how they look in my life.

It's daily laying down your life isn't it? What would life look like if we took this scripture to heart and lived our lives accordingly?
Blessings to you friend

How easy it is to read the scriptures and fail to put it into practice. I want to be like this by the power of the Holy Spirit. I want Him to remind me until it is embedded in my character and actions!

These are verses that need to be read over and over. I especially feel they are so pertinent to me right now.

Oh my. I am chuckling to myself. Because that is quite a challenge. How many times have I skimmed those words and never let them sink in? Thanks for the challenge! Love you!!
