1-Apr-12: Philippians 2:5-11


5 Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,

6 who, though he was in the form of God,

did not regard equality with God

as something to be exploited,

7 but emptied himself,

taking the form of a slave,

being born in human likeness.

And being found in human form,

8 he humbled himself

and became obedient to the point of death—

even death on a cross.

9 Therefore God also highly exalted him

and gave him the name

that is above every name,

10 so that at the name of Jesus

every knee should bend,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11 and every tongue should confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.








“……and you say we must bow down in order to be higher?”




So friends all circled round to sup and sip and dup and dip all fusty and dusty.

So critters and unfolksies sat and plopped and popped berries and nuts alike.

When just from out a big cracked rock crawled the ragged one all musty.

“Oh, kneel with me, serve with me, lower ye selves with me such lowly tyke.”



“What keens ye, what means ye, now heal-led crawler so smalling?

“We ‘uns ready to serve, ready to help, we need not go lower–no, no!”

“Ah, but do ye not know,”cried Raggedy”, that we must be like Him in calling!”

“We must kneel and serve all bowed down,iffen we be raised High with Him to glow!”
