Everyone has goals. Whether it’s to lose twenty pounds, go back to school, run a marathon, write a book, save for a new car, or buy those shoes that we’ve had our eye on for a while. We all have some motivation to strive for something that we want. In a world that teaches us to focus on ourselves, what we want, what we have, and what we think we deserve, it’s so important to remind ourselves that our ultimate goal should always be to strive to resemble Christ. God desires for us to model His selflessness, humility, long suffering, discipline, honesty, and his attitude of service. Can you say that that’s one of your goals?
Doing a personal study on attitude this week I was really convicted. It’s rare for me to look outside of myself, silence my own desires, and stir myself up to do something I don’t want to do, especially when it’s not going to benefit me in some way. But, as ambassadors for Christ, we’re called to live different and be different. Which leads me to this week’s #MondayMeditation. A simple reminder to us about our priorities.
According to Philippians 2:5 & Ephesians 4:23-24
