One of my favorite places to ever visit was the Tube in London. I have a fascination with trains, and this century old subway system is simply incredible. Of particular interest to me are the painted signs all along the station landings that read, "MIND THE GAP." The concern is that a person might get his or her foot stuck between the platform and the cars, and the warning is there to help prevent the mishap. I think that Paul gives the Philippians a similar warning in Philippians 1:27 when he tells them to live their lives in a manner worthy of the Gospel of Christ. There is a temptation, at times, for there to be a gap between what Christians say and how Christians live. Ultimately, we need to "mind the gap" between or words and our actions so we can make them line up more closely with each other. Are you "minding the gap" in your life?
