Let’s say you come home from a hard day at work and all you want is peace and quiet, but your loved ones need something of you and you become irritated, upset. You end up causing conflict. They’re miserable and you’re miserable. The problem is that you had the wrong goal. The real goal should have been to be more like Messiah- to love, to become more beautiful as a person, to become a more holy person. Your goal isn’t to have a peaceful night, it’s to have a peaceful spirit, a heart of peace. You can apply this to any part of your life, any goal. Don’t let any goal cause you to lose sight of your true goal to become more like Him- to love God and others and glorify Him with your life on earth. When you do that, you will get the blessing on top of it. Not that your life will always be filled with beautiful circumstances, but that your life will be filled with a beautiful Messiah-like person, who happens to be you.
Today’s Mission – Make it your one goal today, above and beyond all goals, to be more godly, righteous, and beautiful in the Lord.
