We all need to grow! Everyday that God gives you another day on this planet is an opportunity to grow for His glory and other people’s blessing. Here are five questions that we all ought to ask ourselves on a regular basis to make sure that we are growing in the right direction!
What Are You Learning? You are never to old to learn. It has been my observation through my short life that the people who seem the youngest are those who are always seeking to learn something new. Learning means growing. Take time today to learn something new. Read a book, have a meaningful conversation and really listen to all that is going on around you!
How Are You Praying? We can’t make it through the ups and downs of this life without having conversation with our Creator. God loves you and wants to have conversation with you. Our praying should consist of our going to God about our troubles, and it should also consist of our going to God with our whatever. Take some time today to get in some quiet time with God – you will be glad you did!
When Are You Giving? If everyone took and nobody gave, then this would be a very messed up world! Take a good look at your life and observe the times that you are giving. If we are not careful – we will get into a routine of only giving when someone has given to us. I am not sure that this is really giving at all. True fulfillment in life flows out of our giving and seeking nothing in return.
Where Are You Going? Fail to plan and plan to fail! You have to know where you are going and it really helps if you have a plan on how you are going to get there. Take a few moments today to think about where your life is taking you. Is it where you really want to go? If not, then make the necessary adjustments!
Why Are You Still Reading? You’ve got work to do – if you are going to do all the growing that God has planned for you – so get busy!
