1 Therefore, if you have any encouragement for me from your being in union with the Messiah, any comfort flowing from love, any fellowship with me in the Spirit, or any compassion and sympathy,
2 then complete my joy by having a common purpose and a common love, by being one in heart and mind.
3 Do nothing out of rivalry or vanity; but, in humility, regard each other as better than yourselves -
4 look out for each other's interests and not just for your own.
