From Philippians 2:1-11
The Submissive Mind — The Great Example!
There is a difference between unity and uniformity in church workers today. True spiritual unity comes from within; it is a matter of the heart. Uniformity is the result of pressure from without.

The humble person is not one who thinks meanly of himself; he simply does not think of himself at all!
