This song I am sharing today is powerful. Both artists have beautiful voices. And you have to read what Mrs. Springer wrote in the comment section in regards to the timing of this song and the events unfolding around America. This is God at work.
3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:3-4)
Here we get more instruction on living as a Christian from Paul. Do nothing out of selfish ambition. In humility value others above yourselves. I wish my wife had taken this devotion. I could almost picture how she’d start this: “whoa, whoa, whoa.” Do nothing out of selfish ambition! Nothing? But I want to get that new truck. But I want to take that extravagant vacation. But I want to accept that promotion for the money despite the time it will take away from my family. Nothing out of selfish ambition.
We have some work to do, America. In a time where we are so focused on “America First,” Paul clearly shows that our value is to be humbly regarded as less than those around us. Stop letting the devil tear us apart. The world needs us to be the Christian heroes we were destined to be. Let’s get to work.

Prayer and meditation: Pray for our country. Pray for love to conquer all. Pray that Christ infects our hearts and ignites a final fire of revival to sweep this land.
Fitness challenge: Distance run day. Run as far and as long as you want, but make sure you are out there pounding pavement for at least 30 minutes.
