If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. Paul also teaches the Philippians to look to the example of other godly people.
In a time before the completed New Testament, a living example was especially important. Even today, the lives of godly people—seen in person or in a biography—can inspire us to deeper spiritual growth.
Jesus also used the tool of personal example when teaching His followers John Hebrews 11 offers the examples of other godly people given as inspiration to believers. Counter-intuitively for us, we discover that putting others first actually benefits us more in the long run, as well as being good for those we serve. What made him happy was what he least expected: turning his back on all that and looking to Jesus.

In fact he says that, compared to Jesus, all the other stuff was less than worthless But he has learnt the secret to being content whether he has plenty or whether he has hardly anything : looking to Jesus! How can I stay joyful in hard times? This joy in Jesus was really helping Paul as he wrote.
He was pretty sure he would be released from prison, but there was also a chance that he would die in there, or be executed. Either way, he found a way to be happy — by making Jesus the most important thing in his life. That way he could look forward to life as a chance to serve Jesus, and he could even look forward to death as the time that he would finally be with Jesus
