Watch Out for Each Other



Philippians 2:3-4 (CEB):  Don't do anything for selfish purposes, but with humility think of others as better than yourselves.  Instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others.



Peace be with you. Stay safe. Stay strong. Take care of one another.
