A boy once asked his father, “What’s status quo, Daddy?
“Son,” his father answered gravely, “that’s just the name of the mess we’re in.”
In Philippians chapter two, Paul addresses church members who have created a mess for themselves. Yet, he writes these words of encouragement, “13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”
God works—even in the status quo.
