INCREMENTAL GROWTH

Growth is hard to see. We measure growth. When an acorn is crushed by a 1,000 lb. tombstone, who wins? It’s a no brainer. The acorn always wins. God waters it, and slow growth appears. Let’s all work toward incremental growth in our spiritual life– the same way we are working toward growing in fitness and strength.

BEING INTENTIONAL

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.

So much of life can be just going through the motions. We need to be intentional in the things we do. Whether it’s a theme like forgiveness, which the Lord has put in my life lately, or the way you treat your wife, kids, co-workers, etc. Let’s be intentional in our deeds and actions this week.
