How to live a virtues life
Today's devotion is based on Philippians 2:1-4. “Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”
Today's passage from Philippians describes a life filled with virtues: encouragement, comfort, love, unity, humility, and selflessness. It can be difficult to live a life like this, especially in a world that is often selfish and divided. But it is possible when we are united to Christ.
