Philippians 2:3-5

Perhaps Rick Warren read this Philippians passage before he made this saying popular, “It’s not about you.”  Everything in our culture tells us the opposite.  Get all you can and enjoy it.  Whoever has the most toys at the game’s end is the winner.  These are the beliefs of popular culture.  Most of us bring that attitude to church with us.  We want church like we want it…now.  If not, we will be Christian consumers, and go elsewhere.  Thankfully, church is not about us!

Prayer Thought:  Thank God that church is one place or community in the world that is not focused on pleasing you – but has a much higher purpose.
