More commentary about this passage from The Lucado Encouraging Word Bible: 

“Paul reminded the Philippians that Christ guaranteed their position through faith alone.

Jesus’ promise is comprehensive: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled” (Matthew 5:6). Blessed are those, then, who hold their earthy possessions in open palms. Blessed are those who are totally dependent upon Jesus for their joy.

Do you find yourself taking pride in your friends, career, talents, abilities, or position? Tell God today that you treasure Him most of all.”
