Mind your manners

"Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;" (Phil. 1:27)
"Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind." (Phil. 2:2)
"Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves." (Phil. 2:3)
"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:" (Phil. 2:5)
"For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state." (Phil. 2:20)
"Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. " (Phil. 3:15-16)
"Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)" (Phil. 3:19)
"I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord." (Phil. 4:2)
"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4:7)
I think that one of the reoccuring themes in Philippians has to do with the mind. I praise the Lord that God is very interested in our mind. After all, God is to be loved with all of our mind.
