Everyone has various goals in life in which they continually extend their efforts to achieve. One goal every Christian should have is a daily goal to grow to be more like Christ. The scriptures teach us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18), and living in a world with new conflicts and challenges every day, we need daily growth to survive and thrive. This passage of scripture makes it clear that God wants us to grow; The circumstances we live in makes it clear that we need to grow; and our surroundings, nature, the presence of God, etc., makes it clear that we have the tools, support and the ability to grow each day, just like the plants. So let’s make it a daily goal to grow and become more like Christ. I’m convinced that if our daily goal is some degree of spiritual growth, the world will become a much better place in a very short period of time. Make it your goal to grow daily in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
