Philippians: Cultivating a Christlike Perspective
The Book of Philippians feasts on the word Phroneo, which means “mindset”. This word is repeated throughout Paul’s letter and is the central theme. Everything we say and do flows from the mindset we choose. It is imperative to perceive as accurately as we can. Otherwise, we will be led astray by false realities and empty promises. The right mindset can bring peace and inspire action. It sets the stage for hope and empowers our ability to love. Jesus modeled this kind of mindset and was constantly challenging others to do the same.
