Christian Goal Setters

Christians Who Mature Are Usually Goal-Setters

"The sad truth is that most people spend more time planning their summer vacation than they do planning the rest of their life." Mark Batterson

Successful people are goal-setters, and so are successful (growing) Christians. 

Batterson says God designed our brains as "goal-seeking organisms": when we "set our minds" to do something, our brains function differently. 

Most Christians acknowledge their need to change and grow, but few set deliberate goals to do so. 
Christians Who Mature Are Usually Goal-Setters
Today take time to define areas where you need improvement: Bible study? Prayer? Christian Fellowship? Accountability? Dealing Biblically with anger, self-pity, selfishness, or irresponsibility? Becoming more self-controlled in regard to eating or spending?

Pray about these areas, and set some specific goals. 

Small goals help us "press on" toward our greatest goal of knowing Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:7-14).
