Its one of those difficult days when its hard to determine what to post. Lane Kiffin? Well that’s old news given so much else that is going on. I was in a study last night where this verse from Philippians 2 was discussed:
1If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. 3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
The whole chapter has stuck with me, and that’s why Lane Kiffin is old news. This verse is very profound, very threatening, even very motivating. So today here are two things related to this verse.
First, a great example of a person doing their best to live this verse. A daily buffeter herself, this is a great story about a local school counselor doing her best to love and help others. Hand WDEF’s Golden Apple to Jennifer Greer. (applause)
Second, a challenge, or an opportunity for you all to consider today. Disasters are always a time when we can count our blessings, and continue to show the compassion we have been given. Here is one place you can donate that will be working in the disaster zone in Haiti – Healing Hands International.
Look out for others today!
