I am so honored to be guest posting over at (in)courage today:
Taking the envelope in my hand, I gently opened it and removed a small laminated notecard along with a separate handwritten note from my mentor-friend. First I read her note. My eyes pored over her sweet, encouraging words, truly like honey to my soul.
Putting her note aside, I held the laminated card before me and saw beautiful hand-lettered words written in black ink. My friend had artistically written out Philippians 2:3-4:
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
I read the words and paused. I reread. I paused again, then thought, “She meant this for me?”
I was caught off guard by the verse on selfishness.
