The Christian Default

I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. Philippians 4:2


We Christians have a default. When things get confusing consider how Jesus would look at a situation. This is not “What Would Jesus Do,” but “How Would Jesus Think?” Paul did not tell these two women to stop arguing (we assume they had some conflict) but to think like Jesus. As you go through your day and are confronted by your desires, attitudes and choices to make –go back to your default. Try to look at your situation the way Jesus would. From that perspective of selfless grace you are ready to act. Have a great day!
