"I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content."
Text: Philippians 4:11
The Apostle Paul maintained a very strong and affectionate relationship with the Philippians. He bared his heart to them in his epistle. The epistle to the Philippians is arguably one of the most personal letters Paul wrote. He expressed great joy in the way the Philippians thought of him.
“Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have
learned in whatever state I am, to be content:
I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound.
Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full
and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
