Interpretation: Paul hopes to send Timothy to the Philippians soon, with the intention that he may be cheered by their news. Paul chooses Timothy because he has no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for their welfare, unlike others who only care about themselves and don't pursue the interests of Jesus Christ. Moreover, the Philippians know of Timothy's worthy already - through how he has proven himself by faithfully serving alongside Paul in the gospel, like how a son would with a father. Not only is Paul eager to send Timothy as soon as he can, he furthermore trusts that he himself will be able to come as well. Application: (i) Appreciating the value of encournagement, especially to those in difficult circumstances. Oh how easy it is to say a polite "how are you?" to others at church without really showing a genuine interest in how they are! Yet when asked in return, it is so much easier to go on and on about the little nuisances which have bothered you in the past week. Humility seems to be what is required here. It is not all about you! (ii) Challenge to put Christ first above our own interests. In line with the "Christian Attitude" we dealt with earlier: "to live is Christ, and to die is gain". Can we back that up with the way we go about with our lives?
