Naturally, this verse needs to be read in context - especially with Paul's list of Jewish privileges.
Remember, his reason for listing them is twofold:
1) to serve as a warning against believing that circumcision and keeping of the Law was required to show we are "perfect" Christians, (Philippians 3:2)
2) that we don't need physical marks on our body as prove of our faith, (Philippians 3:3)
2) to remember that he, especially, has reason to have confidence in the flesh (Philippians 3:4).
As he previously stated, our confidence should be in God! His message is clear:
A simple faith in Jesus Christ is all it takes to serve Him.

Remember the Granny Square Cardigan I made?
It was featured by Susie at Oui Crochet's Fiber Tuesday Link Up! I almost fell out of my chair when I saw that! Thank you again, Susie! I'm still flying in the clouds! :)
Lately it seems I am returning to
my comfort craft - crocheting.
I ran out of hexies for
my Hexagon Afghan,
but a quick trip to Jo Ann's
solved the problem!
Though I couldn't find the exact matches, these are pretty close!
I made a bunch of gold hexies
and am now working on green ones!
the hexies live in this beautiful basket!
Eureka! I found these flowers in the basket!
