 “….He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God….”

Philippians 2:6-8

We may find ourselves striving to reach certain goals, in our career, education, personal – or spiritual! life and looking to reach a certain place where we feel proud. Jesus shows us we are called to the opposite- to follow God does not always lead to places that humans see as honourable or successful in any way at all. When we allow God to lead us, we have nothing to prove, because wherever we end up, we are secure in knowing that in following God.

We are his witness, and others can see his love through and in our humility and commitment. What would it be like to live just one day without striving to do or be anything more than simply what God asks of us in each moment? Are we willing to let go of our own hopes, dreams, expectations, beliefs and ideas to try? Perhaps we could even start with just one hour.
