Philippians & Colossians

Good reading today. I especially enjoyed Philippians. I think Philippians is like the Casablanca of the New Testament. Casablanca has so many classic movie lines that people say all the time and most don't even realize they came from that movie. Philippians is like that. It's chock full of classic memory verses or verses you've seen on t-shirts, bumper stickers, coffee mugs, or heard preached dozens of times. Here are a couple that stuck with me today.

Philippians 3:20 (ESV)
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,...

Colossians 4:5-6 (ESV)
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let you speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
