Interpretation: To Paul, there are benefits to living and dying. He knows that remaining in the flesh will lead to fruitful labor for him, but dying means that he will be with Christ, which is far better. And so he has difficulty choosing between the two. But he knows that for the sake of the Philippians, it is more beneficial for him to remain in the flesh. So therefore he does so with the purpose of growth and joy in the faith of the Philippians, and that they may glory in Christ all the more because of him. Thoughts/Reflections: (i) How does this change my view of death? How is it different from the way the world sees it? Have I truly grasped the magnitude of being with Christ? (ii) What can I do to not waste my life?
