A model

After Philippians 2:1-11

We have a model

for this humility thing.

He didn’t see himself

equal to God. Instead,

he poured himself out

to serve to the point

of death. Bow 

your knee; let

your tongue confess

who he is and what

he did. He’s the model,

the prototype, the one

to emulate, to embrace,

the one to follow and

do likewise.
