Thought of the Day September 26, 2022 Holy indifference

By 10:12 AM

In his Letter to the Philippians, St. Paul writes: "(I pray) that with all boldness, now as always, Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me life is Christ, and death is gain." (Philppians 1:20-21)

 He was in prison for the Gospel. He knew that even this would be used by Jesus for the glory of God. Whether he live and continue to suffer for the Gospel or die and experience the fullness of glory was not important. What was important was that in either he was in the will of God for him in the moment. This is call holy indifference. To be willing to embrace whatever the will of God is for us in our present circumstances, in spite of one's preference. This is the example Jesus gave us in his prayer to the Father in the Garden. "Father, take away this cup, but not my will but yours be done." In h is humanity he didn't want to suffer the cruel death of the cross. But in his relationship with the Father, he wanted to embrace the will of the Father. Pray for the grace to have holy indifference in the various situations you encounter.
