Here Paul is giving the Philippians three distinct instructions: 1) to welcome Epaphorditus in the LORD, 2) with great joy, and 3) and honor people like him.
Why would Paul make such a request? To partially answer this question, we have to read onto verse 2:30. Now, there's a lot to study in v. 30, but today we are looking at verse 29. Let's look at the first of the three instructions Paul gave.
LORD, thank You for this lesson not only in hospitality, but in welcoming missionaries back home! Let us remember to welcome all in the LORD, especially missionaries! Help me to do something to make everyone feel welcome and at peace in my home. If we are not home, help me to keep a warm heart for everyone.
Now, LORD, I am not asking to be a doormat - that is something else entirely. Besides, You and I both know I would not make a very good doormat! :)
Just please, help me to be Your servant to minister in the LORD!
I love You, My Abba Father!

I finished my April RSC blocks and here they are swinging happily from a tree! Those seams show up in the pictures making their presence known!
For some reason I ended up with quite a few 4" extras to add to my collection!
