Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.
Eternal Father, be our strength, our hope, our love to-day...allow me to see past so much ugly in the natural so that all I know are Your spiritual truths. Reign in our hearts, fill us with your wisdom, let our minds be tainted by Your love, and our decisions pleasing to You. Amen
