Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4.)
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. (Romans 12:15 ESV)Pea's parents (who are amazing believers, by the way) meet with the surgeon today to discuss the next step in treatment. God is my King, my Heavenly Father, my provider, my protector, etc. I truly believe in His sovereignty and His loving hand in all of this. He gives the tools that are needed and we have faith in Him and His will for precious Sweet Pea. Our hope is in a full recovery with no reoccurring issues.
I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him. That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away. (Ecclesiastes 3:14, 15 ESV)
I feel we lose out when we do not take the time to serve others...in what ever way they need to be served!
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (Philippians 2:3-8 ESV)
