A reading from the letter of Paul to the Philippians.
I know what it is to be brought low, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret: whether on a full stomach or an empty stomach, in poverty or plenty; I can do all things through the One who gives me strength.
Still, it was kind of you to want to share in my hardships. In return Our God will fulfill all your needs in Christ Jesus, as lavishly as only God can. All glory to Our God for unending ages! Amen.
The Word of God recorded in the letter of Paul to the Philippians.
