A Thought: To Empty.

After church yesterday, we met our younger daughter at the house, where she was moving her furniture out to move into her new home. As her room emptied, our hearts felt a big empty with this final move from our already “empty nest.” But, the feeling didn’t last long as I remembered emptiness only makes room for something new–a beginning of something. Jesus emptied Himself, and filled us with His grace and salvation. Thank you, Jesus!

Phil.2:5-7 “Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.”
