Re:Verse passage – Philippians 3:12-16 (day three)
“If in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that to you as well.”
Jesus’s table is always too big for some people’s liking. How about you? Who’s not going to want you around that feast? Think about it long enough, and it’ll break your heart. With Jesus, everybody’s invited, and he notices who’s not there. He made that clear in the parables he told. You’ll think one way, I’ll think another, and pretty soon we’re trying to save seats for our favorites. We’ll make all kinds of logical defenses for our attitudes, but the one attitude that will rescue the celebration is that of Christ himself. Your place around his table is no less an act of mercy towards you than it is towards anybody else. When you and I start thinking like that, we’ll need a bigger table.
