The Philippian followers of Jesus proved themselves to be thoughtful and generous in their support of the Apostle Paul. Their concern for Paul led them to care for his needs “more than once”. This letter is written to acknowledge gifts brought by Epaphroditus – which Paul experienced as “a fragrant offering”.
Let us learn from their example. Pause and ask who God wants blessed today – and think of a way that God might use you to do so.

The Scripture passage for the day is drawn from Reuben Job and Norman Shawchuck, A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and other Servants, (Nashville, The Upper Room 1983), 213.
This reflection is from my own devotional exercises for the day.
