It is good to have goals, but the goals need to be the right goals. As Ted Turner said, "You should set goals beyond your reach so you always have something to strive for." Our goals should give us focus and something to strive for in our lives. As followers of God, we can also set goals that are beyond what we could accomplish on our own!
When we have experienced God in our lives, one of our goals should be to share His love and the redemption through Christ with others! We can set a goal to encourage each other. We can set a goal to love each other, even if we disagree. We can set a goal to share the gift of forgiveness and redemption that is offered through Jesus Christ. Once we set these goals, we can ask God for help in meeting them and expanding our influence in this world for His glory!
Set goals to encourage, love, and share the Good News, then ask God to help you meet these goals!
Thank You for Your love, encouragement, and redemption. Help me to work toward the goals of sharing these things with others so they can see Your glory! In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
