Last week it was bulk trash time in the neighborhood, which meant residents could set out items that don’t fit in a typical trash container, and the City of Phoenix waste service scheduled collection of such items.
The sides of many streets were littered with an assortment of broken furniture and odds and ends that may not have even met the guidelines of “bulk trash,” sometimes spilling over into the sidewalks as well. You’d find curious children or adults digging through the piles in search of a treasure, with dogs ripping out the stuffing in old couches and recliners. Not a pretty sight!
In Philippians 3:18, Paul wrote, “Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ.”
What do you need to put in your “garbage can” so that Christ can be known more fully in your life?
