A reading from the letter of Paul to the Philippians.
If our life in Christ means anything to you, if love – or the Spirit that we have in common, or any tenderness and sympathy – can persuade you at all, then be united in your convictions and united in your love, with a common purpose and a common mind. That is the one thing which would make me completely happy. There must be no competition among you, no conceit; but everybody is to be humble, each of you thinking of the interest of others rather your own.
The Word of God recorded in the letter of Paul to the Philippians.
