“He emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness…He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.”
– Philippians 2: 6-11
Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, April 25, 2015:
5 In the same way, younger people, be subject to the elders. Humility towards one another must be the garment you all wear constantly, because God opposes the proud but accords his favor to the humble.
6 Bow down, then, before the power of God now, so that he may raise you up in due time; 7 unload all your burden on to Him, since He is concerned about you.
8 Keep sober and alert, because your enemy the devil is on the prowl like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
9 Stand up to Him, strong in faith and in the knowledge that it is the same kind of suffering that the community of your brothers throughout the world is undergoing.
10 You will have to suffer only for a little while: the God of all grace who called you to eternal glory in Christ will restore you, He will confirm, strengthen and support you.
11 His power lasts for ever and ever. Amen.
