Heirs in Christ

I just want to point out very briefly that when Paul talks about his celibate life and his chuldren, he is speaking about his ‘heirs in christ’, instead of biological children,  which were the ideal of having a lot of fame and fortune in like,  a lot of biblical societies as cultures changed.  Children were security.  It’s funny how Paul trades in his baby making priveleges to follow Jesus, and apparently,  somw scholars think he had a wife at some point, but she died. That’s positive thinking like, off the chain. The body of christ is like, the real deal, and his attitude was pretty influential in making that happen.

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
