“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Philippians 1:20

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Avoid anything in your everyday lives

that would be unworthy of the gospel of Christ.

.

– Philippians 1:20 (TJB)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

In other words, "Live like good citizens."

In addition to whichever positions we have in society,

we Christians are citizens of heaven

and therefore we should lead a life

that is worthy of the Gospel of Christ.

..

We must be like good citizens of the Kingdom of God, where Christ reigns as King,

by loyally obeying His laws.

..

Christ especially wants us to love one another,

because, such love encompasses all other precepts of the law.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Being a citizen of heaven

is quite compatible with being a citizen of human society:

to acknowledge God

is in no way to oppose the dignity of man,

since such dignity is grounded and brought to perfection in God.

.

We have in fact

been placed in society by God,

who created us as intelligent and free beings;

but over and above this

we are called, as sons and daughters, to intimacy with God

and to share in His happiness.”

.

– "Gaudium Et Spes” – Vatican II

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Have mercy on me, O Lord, and forgive my unworthiness.
