Goal-Setting with God in Mind…

My brother turns 55 today (happy birthday Thad!) It seems fitting to celebrate Thad with a devotional website he recommended to me years back.

Rick’s commentary on goal-setting (a topic Thad likes) is HERE and includes two major focus questions:

  • Will my goal honor God?
  • Is my goal motivated by love?

Seems our personal goals can focus this way, but over a business career, my goals rarely involved answering either of these two questions affirmatively. However, as Rick suggests, can virtually all of our goals – both personal and professional – be framed for positive response on honoring and loving? The challenge is to examine the issue fully and frame it appropriately. And isn’t that what we want to do with most of our Christian life?

ACTION: Ask yourself these questions from Rick’s devotional: “What goals have you set for yourself for this year? How do they hold up under these two questions?”

Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
