Do Nothing From…

No wonder many would have loved to see Paul stoned dead…

God’s Word via apostle Paul- Philippians 2.3

“Do nothing from [Lit according to Or from contentiousness] selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility consider one another as more important than yourselves” NASB

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves” ESV

“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit [through factional motives, or strife], but with [an attitude of] humility [being neither arrogant nor self-righteous], regard others as more important than yourselves” AMP

And I think it important to add another statement of Paul’s in this mix:

“for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” 2 Timothy 1.7 ESV

“self-control” re. biblical Greek includes that and also: sound mind, moderation, discipline

Church, professing Christians (including me)- how are we doin’??

As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
