Q4. Discerning the Best

Recommended Posts

 Paul asks God to give the Philippians discernment so that they would be able to know what is best for any situation but mostly in serving God.  Paul wants them to be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.  Being human, of course they aren't perfect, but because of Jesus' work on the cross, they are pure and blameless as He took our sins and died for us.
Putting themselves (ourselves) first in situations (what will make ME feel good vs what will benefit the other person) will contradict what God wants from us.
Striving to "Be Good" is not trusting that God has forgiven us.  In the "Good", we'll be focused on ourselves, not on the love of God with ongoing giving of glory and praise.  We need to focus on what really pleases God, not on what pleases us or another.
