Psalm: 144

Meditation

Philippians: An exhortation to meekness and humility (and that by example). Since I am not all that familiar with humility I can use all the help I can get. Here, we see it is nothing more than considering others as better than oneself. Paul goes on to describe what has to be the greatest demonstration of humility the world has ever seen: “but [Jesus] made Himself nothing taking the very nature of a servant [slave]. The profundity of that act gets lost on us, perhaps because so much time has elapsed and so many customs have changed as to make that act underappreciated.

Gospel: Luke 19:41-48

New Testament: Philippians 2:1-11

Old Testament: Zechariah 14:12-21
