Phillippians 2:14-16

The reading from the Morning Prayer today is this:

“In everything you do, act without grumbling or arguing; prove yourselves innocent and straightforward, children of God beyond reproach in the midst of a twisted and depraved generation—among whom you shine like the stars in the sky, as you hold on to the word of life, so that my boast for the day of Christ may be that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.”

St Paul was so prescient – how could he have seen how depraved and twisted our generation has become? But he did not labor in vain. How many have been saved by his words? St. Paul please pray for us.
