Keep the main thing the Main Thing. Is Christ being proclaimed? Then: rejoice! What do you have to do with the hearts of men?

b Some indeed preach Christ
from envy and rivalry,
but others from good will.
The latter do it out of love,
c knowing that I am put here for d the defense of the gospel.
The former proclaim Christ e out of selfish ambition,
not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.
Only that in every way,
whether in pretense or in truth,
Christ is proclaimed,
and in that I rejoice.
Yes, and I will rejoice,
Main point summary
I rejoice when Christ is preached, whatever the motivation.
