In his letter to the church at Philippi the apostle Paul wrote concerning the joy at having recently received from the church their care for him. They had supported Paul in the past as he acknowledge saying, “Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. 16 For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities” (Phil. 4:15, 16). For some reason they had not been sending that support recently. They had wanted to help but they lacked the opportunity to do so. Such a lack of opportunity might because of a variety of reasons. Per- haps they did not have the funds to send. We know that they had sent support to the poor saints in Jerusalem. This was a special need that needed to be met. Philippi was one of those churches in Macedonia that begged Paul to allow them to par- ticipate in that giving to the poor saints in Jerusalem (II Cor. 8:1 -5). Their lack of opportunity may have been due to not having anyone to carry their gift to Paul. They may not have known where Paul was and thus were not able to deliver their support to him. But now that they have been able to send the support, Paul expresses his joy for their renewed support. But in doing so he is very careful not to hurt their feelings. He does not want them to think that Paul is in any way upset with their not having helped him in some time. So Paul says, “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in what- soever state I am, therewith to be content” (Phil. 4:12). What does It mean to be content? The word that Paul used is autarkies which means to be “entirely self-sufficient.” Some believe that Paul was taking a clue from the Stoic phi- losophers, who were very active in their teaching during the time of Paul. We know that Paul had some encounter with them when he was in Athens. Luke tell us in Acts 17:18, “Then cer- tain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the res- urrection.” The Stoic philosophers attempted to reach that stage of self sufficiency by getting rid of all desires and all emotions. They believed that if one could limit their desires, then they could be contented in life. Much of our discontent is because we don’t always have or get what we want. Some years ago, there was a story in U.S. News and World Report that I believe is probably just as relevant today as it was then. The story was about the so-called “American Dream.” I guess that would in- clude owning your own home, and having all your needs met for sure, but also having enough to do all the things you really wanted to do, and have all the things you really wanted to have. The story said that for Americans with household incomes of under $25,000, polls showed these people believed it would take $54,000 to fulfill the American dream in their lives. The same survey also showed that for those who make $100,000, they’d like to make about $192,000 for their version of the American dream. In other words, the American Dream usually lies nearly twice the distance away, at least financially. Now the Stoic philosophers would tell us that we need to train ourselves to the point that we no longer want those things. The Stoics thought to control their emotions by begin- ning with little things and learning not to be upset if anything happened to it. Barclay: “If you break your favorite vase, you say, ‘I don’t care.’ You do this with other things that are important to you until finally you can get to the point where the person dearest to you can die and you can say, ‘I don’t care.’” However, this is not how Paul achieved this con- tentment in his life. -to be continued SINGING 6-9 Dianna Singing—TN 6-10 Spring Valley Church of Christ 6-16 Collinsville Church of Christ 6-23 Oxford Church of Christ CONGRATULATIONS Will Wren & Joy Long They were married on Friday June 2, 2017 Wedding shower will be June 25, 2017 2-4 pm in the fellowship hall Everyone is invited They will be registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond, and Target.
