Philippians 4:4-5

4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

moderation (v.5) — sweet reasonableness — looking humanely and reasonably at the facts of a circumstance or case — the opposite of self-seeking or contention — the outward expression of an inward character — forbearance, considerateness, graciousness, gentleness — overlooking the faults and failures of others

known (v.5) = knowledge gained by experience

at hand (v.5) — could refer to the Lord’s constant presence and/or His soon, or imminent, return — The Lord’s presence and imminent return are grounds for not worrying.
