10-25-15. Philippians 1:12-18. There are four common barriers to happiness. Paul experienced all four. He has every reason to be bitter, unhappy and depressed, instead he writes about how to be happy and reflect positively on the Lord, no matter what happens. Paul doesn’t just tell us how, he shows us how by modeling four habits he’d developed. In these verses we see the first two: 1. Look at every problem from God’s viewpoint. 2. Don’t let others control your attitude.
