Before the news of the bombing came out, I spent part of my lunch hour preparing for the Bible study I lead on Wednesday nights. It's a Matt Chandler video study on the book of Philippians.

Here are my notes from part of this week's session:

"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. (Philippians 3:20, 21 NIV)

Why shouldn't we be living with eternity in mind? How do we do that on a daily basis?

Anytime we don't feel well or are hurt, or our bodies don't work right, or we hear about tragedy...these are reminders that this isn't our home."

Funny how just a couple of hours later, I needed that reminder...
