Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

What Can’t We Give Up?

In a local newspaper today were printed responses to the question, “Things you can’t live without even when money is tight”.  This is what they said:

Pop/Pepsi (3)
Internet (3)
Cellphone (2)
Cigarettes
Air Conditioning
Jeep (for safe winter driving)
MP3 Player
Perfume
Shopping
Pedicures
Books

 

What would I have said?  Would my response have been pleasing to the Lord?  Think of Paul sitting in prison as he wrote to the Philippians (esp. chapter 3).  What did he consider non-negotiable?  It surely wasn’t creature comforts, tangible toys, fleeting pleasures.  Rather, it was the invisible…

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Cor. 4:18 (NIV)
