Read Philippians 3:1-11

At my core, I can be a bit of a hoarder. You know, I might need that random power cord to a gadget I’ve thrown away and forgotten about years ago. It’s funny when I go through my old stuff, though. What at one time seemed so important for me to hold onto, I now look at and think “what in the world was I holding onto that for?”

In Philippians 3, Paul talks about how so many of our accomplishments is like that random junk in our garage. He went down the list of his impressive resume. But, in the end, he said it’s all now like garbage to him in comparison to knowing Christ.

The last few weeks have been crazy in our world, but it has also served to reorient our priorities. It’s showed us a little bit of what’s truly important in life. Take this opportunity to evaluate what you’ve been holding onto. How does it compare to a relationship with Christ?
