The Third Fruit: Peace (MNM 7)

. . . I have learned to be satisfied with the things I have and with everything that happens. I know how to live when I am poor, and I know how to live when I have plenty. I have learned the secret of being happy at any time in everything that happens, when I have enough to eat, and when I go hungry, when I have more than I need and when I do not have enough. I can do all things through Christ, because He gives me strength. Philippians 4:10b-13 (New Century Version)
. . . I have learned to be content, whatever the circumstances may be. I know now how to live when things are difficult and I know how to live when things are prosperous. In general and particular I have learned the secret of facing either poverty or plenty. I am ready for anything through the strength of the one who lives in me. Philippians 4:10b-13 (J.B. Phillips New Testament)
Soaking in the Scripture (Section 1)
Today, spend some time reflecting on Philippians 4:11b-13.Read it a few times, perhaps in different translations, or even aloud.
