Philippians 3:8 (The Message): “everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant—dog dung.”
There are lots of things that we think are important: schedules, money, education, family, jobs, achievement, sports, entertainment, travel, etc.
No doubt that these things are important, along w stuff I haven’t listed. But let’s be very clear about what is most important in our lives based on Phil 3:8. Paul said in these verses that nothing in is life was more important than knowing Jesus – not his education, his heritage nor his upbringing. Paul considered everything as literal “crap” compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Jesus. Let’s be like Paul & make knowing Jesus the most important focus & goal that steers our daily living!
