Psalms 23-25; Philippians 3

Philippians 3:18-19 For many, as I have often told you and now tell you even in tears, conduct themselves as enemies of the cross of Christ.  Their end is destruction.  Their God is their stomach; their glory is their “shame.”  Their minds are occupied with earthly things.

I believe most of the people Paul was talking about then – and he would be talking about today – in their own minds aren’t enemies of the cross of Christ.  They simply don’t care one way or the other.  They don’t engage in introspection, they just live from one sensate moment to the next.  A line from a Willie Nelson song comes to mind: “Livin’s just something I do.”  Those of us whose minds are more occupied with unearthly things are tasked with attracting the drifting to the joy and ultimate happiness of the Christian life.  Fortunately this task is not onerous, as Jesus says “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light”.  When you feel that joy and happiness, you want to share it.
