At some point in life, everyone will face a difficulty. It might be an illness, unemployment, or the break-up of a family. This raises an important question: How do we rise above difficult circumstances?
It might surprise you, but researchers who study resilient people agree with Jesus: We must have something larger than our circumstances that we are living for.
That’s the premise behind our passage in Philippians 1. The Apostle Paul is writing to a church he helped start – and he’s writing from prison. He’s literally chained to a Roman soldier!
He might be in prison but that hasn’t changed his perspective. How is that possible?
