Joy complete

What do you think joy being complete in us looks like?

Ponder that for a moment and then read this scripture from Philippians 2:2 ~
then make my joy complete by being like minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and in mind.

What would our world looked like, if we were living the scripture above?

Read it from the Message now
If you've gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care-then do me a favor:  Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends.  Don't push your way to the front; don't sweet-talk your way to the top.  Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead.  Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage.  Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.


How many of these are you able to check off?  Are you perhaps like me and need more work?  I know I am a work in progress and this scripture hit me between the eyes and I don't think I'm alone.  Division in this world, in this country, in this state, in this rampant!  If we are living these words division will decrease, so let it begin with me...

How does the words to the old song go "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me"  sound familiar?  Perhaps when we all get it together and are living this verse the picture will happen and it will be beautiful!

Let's start it today!

Sweet blessings,
