Circumstances... They are not all they're cracked up to be. For instance, Paul wrote his letter to the Philippians from a Roman prison cell, yet despite those dire circumstances, his major theme in the letter was joy

How did Paul find joy in a Roman prison cell? He didn't He took his joy in Christ into jail with him. Paul's circumstances did not dictate his attitude. In this letter, he demonstrated several life attitudes that were shocking in their audacity and counter intuitiveness:

  • Rejoice in the Lord, always
  • Living means living for Christ, and dying is even better
  • Think of others as better than yourselves
  • Whatever things were gain, count them as loss
  • You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you
