Click this link to hear an audio version of the below text narrated by SOTH member Jerry Rhinehart:


Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.


Choose one or two key verses from the Scripture reading in Philippians today and do at least one of the following for your chosen verse(s).

A –  Ask questions of the text (Who, what, why, where, when)
– Emphasize certain words as you read the text over & over
I  –  In your own words (paraphrase one or more verses)
O  – Other verses in the Bible that say the same or opposite
U  – Use it; apply the truth from the text in your life


I was a sinner and worthy only of death. Jesus, You loved me anyway. You paid the ransom for my sins and died in my place. Lord I thank and praise You and am humbled by Your great Love and Mercy. Let me never take for granted the gifts that I have received. Allow me the same compassion I have received from You so that I can serve others with love. Amen
