Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.
Amid all the pain and trauma, I needed to be reminded that I have made a promise to turn away from self-centered motives and to turn toward Jesus and his way of love. I have committed, with God’s help, to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving my neighbor as myself, and to strive for justice and peace among all people. In other words, I have committed to live out Philippians 2:4, not just on Sundays but on all days. Even when the world seems to be coming apart at the seams. Even on social media.
