This verse needs to be seen in context - at least to include v. 29. Paul is asking the Philippians to receive Epaphorditus back with great joy, to honor those like him and reminding them that he almost died on the missionary trip.
He also points out that Epaphroditus ministered to him in lieu of the Philippians.
I used to think that v. 30 was a bit harsh - until I read it in the Amplified Version:
Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit,if any tenderness and compassion,Amen.
Here are the rest of the dishcloths I made for my daughter! She loved them! I used this pattern from Dedri at Look What I Made for the dishcloth below.
I finished my Granny Square Cardigan! I made it a bit bigger than suggested so now I can puff it up around my neck.
I am a "voluptuous" woman (nice for full-figured) and it fit me fine. My daughter, who has four babies, has maintained her tiny frame. This looked nice on her as well! Here it is!
Here's another close up of the yarn: I used Yarn Bee's Diva Sequin in Deanli and an "H" hook. I used Nadia Faud's pattern from her blog at YARNutopia.
