Reflection for the Week- March 25th
Philippians is a wonderful letter. Have a read. It’s only four chapters. Whatever our present circumstances, we are to see our lives in a larger context. Present circumstances are important, but shouldn’t control us, because our lives are directed to a greater destiny—to image Christ. As humans, we tend to be so integrated in the present, so overwhelmed by it, that we see the present as all that matters. But Philippians encourages us to recognize that present circumstances are not our final reality—whether joy or suffering. We should be careful not to be lured too deeply into either good or bad present circumstances as if they are all that count for the Christian life.
