At the turn of a year (and in this case, a decade as well), we find ourselves looking in two directions.
On the one hand, we look backward. We take stock of at all that is behind us. Some of it is good, some of it is bad, but all of it is now in the past. How are we supposed to think about it all? What role does it play in shaping our present identity?
On the other hand, we look forward. We dream and plan for what lies ahead. There's nothing but pure possibility. What will the future hold? How will we lean into that future and turn it into something we can be proud of, something that brings us purpose and meaning?
In this two-part series, we're diving into these issues by looking at what the Apostle Paul has to say in Philippians 3.
Old: Forgetting (Philippians 3:13-14)
New: Straining (Philippians 3:13-14)
