A Lesson In Humility – Philippians 2

Philippians 2

When the believers in the Macedonian city of Philippi heard of Paul’s imprisonment in Rome, they sent him financial gifts. And in response, Paul wrote this beautiful letter.

And that kind of innocent, childlike delight and faith, the kind that believes God can do anything, is just what our Father wants us to have. Children, in their humility, aren’t concerned with the things of the world. They aren’t worried about fame and fortune. All they know is the tender care and trust they put in the one they love. The arms of Jesus are always open to His children. He wants us to approach His throne of grace with joy, innocence, and humility. To have open, moldable hearts of a child. Hearts that believe, Jesus loves the little children of the world!
