Read: “In humility count others more significant than yourself. Let each of you look not only to his own interest, but also to the interest of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 2:3-5
We began by counting off to form teams of two.
We were seeking to apply Philippians 2 to partner through the exercises, offering encouragement and assistance along the way, considering the interests of others.

Announcements – St. Als continues to have a strong PAX and is continuing as a blacktops each Tuesday and Thursday as long as there is sufficient interest and Q’s. Cochran will Q on Tuesday. Should be a face melter.
Intentions – Prayed for Abacus’s wife and family. Gave thanks for a successful surgery yesterday. F3 coming up huge with the meal train. Prayed for Pope for healing related to the infection of his heart. Prayed for Weedwacker’s son, Vince in his fight with cancer. Prayed for Badger’s family. Asked God to make us Philippians 2 men who demonstrate true greatness in the way they humbly serve and consider others.
It was truly a privilege and joy to VQ today! Grateful for the HIM who sharpen us to do better each day!
