Today’s reading: Philippians 2:12-18

Paul encourages the members of the church in Philippi as “children of God” to live fully, rightly and differently than those around them who don’t yet know Christ. Why? Because whether we fully realize it or not, our actions and behaviors are delivering a message about Christ and being a Christian to every person we encounter. Thus Paul’s reminder of our need to “shine as lights” to the world.

How would you describe being a child of God to another person? What qualities and/or behaviors are inconsistent with being God’s child? Would you say people recognize you as a child of God? Why or why not? Tami
