Philippians 2:1-4

MSG 1 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 - NIV 1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, MSG 2 then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. NIV 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. MSG 3 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. NIV 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. MSG 4 Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. NIV 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
