Paul's overarching theme in his letter to the Philippians, despite his being in jail at the time, is rejoicing. He uses the words "joy" and "rejoice" (or forms thereof) eleven times in the brief letter. I think his recipe for living a joy-filled life comes in chapter 4. Living a Joy-filled Life: Be reasonable Don't be anxious Prayer/supplication/thanksgiving => God Think about true, honorable, just, pure, lovely commendable, excellent, praisworthy things The Bilateral label for verses 5-8 ties together verses 4 and 9. Paul has been talking about joy and rejoicing throughout this letter, so it is reasonable to equate verse 9 ("practice what you see me practicing") and verse 4 ("Rejoice in the Lord.") As usual, this arc is a work-in-progress. Input and guidance are appreciated.
