THE SECRET TO LIFE
Have you ever given a gift to someone only to see their reaction as one saying, "Thanks, but this makes no difference to my life?" It's like when I was a kid and opened a gift on Christmas morning only to find a new package of underwear. What kid gets excited about that!? Some have interpreted Paul's words in Philippians 4 to say this. But actually, Paul is saying something very different.
Paul unlocks THE SECRET TO LIFE when he says to the Philippian church, (4:12)
"I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need."
