Finishing out Philippines chapter 2, starting in verse 19, Paul goes on to explain how the people around him, he will be sending to Philippi very soon. He mentions two people that will be able to go and bring joy to Paul by ministering in his place. Paul was in jail, yet he is thinking about ways to bring joy to the people. He mentions that Timothy also is more interested in bringing joy to the people than his own comfort.
Do we focus on the needs of others more than our own needs? Are we aware of the need to glorify God, regardless of the personal results? God is the one who deserves our obedience and is worthy of all glory.
