Daily Post #30

Peace Instead of Anxiety: In prayer today, I was reminded of a saying that really helped me as I prepare for something important: “Work from peace, not for peace.” Prepare from peace, not for peace. Do what I do today from peace, not for peace. Then, based on the following Scripture, I prayed over myself that the Lord would guard my mind and heart with His peace. Philippians 4:6–7 reads: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Education: It is never too late to return to school and pursue a dream. Never use age as an excuse.

Supererogation: Good luck pronouncing the term! In case you are interested, here is a two-minute read that will summarize the concept that I focused on in my doctoral studies. I was interested in whether supererogatory deeds are possible in evangelical/Reformed Protestant ethics, the possibility of which had been rejected since the time of the Reformers. Enjoy!
