Will there ever be a time, in your life, when you stop learning and trying to better yourself? It certainly won’t be after high school graduation, when the education process has just begun….or even after college graduation because then the “real world” and all its lessons await. Once you become a parent you have to learn new lessons of raising your own children. And when your children are grown, you have to decide what comes next! So your mission to improve yourself, to learn new things, doesn’t stop until your breathing does! You are a constant project, a work in progress.
God did not design you to be stagnant. He did not design you to be inactive: spiritually, mentally, socially or physically. However, self-improvement is not automatic. Personal development requires discipline. It is not meant to be a burden to you, rather a privilege. By letting God into your life, you will be amazed how much He will help you grow. Scripture says, “Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8 NLT. Start each day as just that, a day. Let go of what lies behind you and look forward to what the new day will bring.
