Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. (Philippians 1:27, NIV 1984).
My Musings – It’s been a very difficult year. During its course, can we honestly say that we’ve conducted ourselves in “a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ?” Of course not. None of us are worthy (merit or deserving) of the gospel. Nevertheless, even if it’s not a place we can ever arrive, it is one to which we should continually strive.
My Advice – Worse days are ahead. While we may not be worthy, we can still act worthy — “whatever happens.“
