Here’s a little pop quiz to get us started: I’m going to give you a list of people and you can guess what they have in common. Ready? Babe Ruth, Larry Bird, President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Mozart, Bill Gates, Helen Keller, Joan of Arc, Mark Twain. They were all left-handed!Where are my lefties in the room this morning? Come on, southpaws. Left hands up and proud. I’m so glad you came to church today, because this is your day. Usually phrases having to do with leftiness are not compliments. You have two left feet means you’re clumsy.
This is our final week in the letter from Paul to the church at Philippi. Last week we talked about how God invites us to be motivated by love and not by fear. We are called to follow the example of Jesus who modeled God's righteousness, extending love to all. As we wrap up this letter, we will consider what our life together looks like when put together all these themes of joy, gratitude, unity, humble love, and God's righteousness.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
