I pressed the down button again and waited. Both elevators sat at the bottom floor just sitting. Finally one moved. B3. B2. Someone who just arrived on the platform pushed the up button. B1. The doors opened. The up button was unlit. New guy gets to go up. How unfair!
Who being in very nature God did not consider equality with God something be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking on the very nature of man and humbled himself to death, even death on a cross.
Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that you can be blameless and pure, children of God in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life.
I make it home. The world's cutest dog runs to great me. A hug. A lick. A kiss. Warmth. I feel the shine returning. I need to dig into the Word more.
But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.
Scripture from Philippians 2.
