According to the World
What does it mean to “war according to the flesh” or the world? When we war according to the world we operate by the world’s rules, we play according to the worlds standards and methods. Do you work according to the world or according to the mind of God? What does that look like?
Well, the world tells us to “grab all you can,” “you deserve it all,” and “go for the gusto.” That life is what warring according to the world looks like. We defend ourselves and we climb to the top. We work to get “ahead.” We live for the weekend. We set our own standards and operate by our own rules. Left to ourselves, we’re the world.
Jesus set a different standard. He said that he came to serve and to give (Mark 10:45). He didn’t travel very far from home, had no 401k and no retirement. He died broke before he was 35.
How can we let Jesus’ life influence ours? What can we give away to our coworkers and our customers today?
