Every once in a while, it’s good to take an assessment of where we are in life and where we are going. Often, we do that in January, but our promises and resolutions seldom last very long. We should be evaluating our lives and making adjustments throughout the year. Here are some questions for you to consider today.
- What are you doing to grow spiritually? We must be intentional about our spiritual growth we can’t ignore it and just live our busy life and expect to become a more mature Christian. You are intentional about taking care of your physical health, but what about your spiritual health? What are you doing to grow spiritually?
- What can you do today to better serve your mate or a close friend? Marriages and relationships take work. They must be a top priority. We know what we want others to do for us, but what can you do today to improve your marriage or other relationships? Where do they need work?
- How can you be a better steward of your body and your health? God gives us one body which He expects to last for a whole lifetime. We need to care for it. We need proper rest, a healthy diet and good exercise. Our body is the temple the Holy Spirit. Are you a good steward of what God has given you? What can you start doing now to take care of your physical health? Remember, it’s the only body you will ever have!
- What is the biggest single time waster in your life and what can you do about it? We do not have to be productive every minute, in fact we shouldn’t be. It’s important to live a balanced life, to have times of relaxation and enjoyment. But it’s easy to allow something in our life that consumes much more time than it should. God gives us 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week. Are you using your time as he would have you use it?
- Who are you building into spiritually? Is there anyone that you are witnessing to or sharing the love of Jesus with? Who are the Christians in your life that you are encouraging and helping to grow? Who are you praying for on a regular basis? God brings many people into our lives. We must be sensitive as to why He put them there and what responsibility we have to them.
1 Corinthians 11:28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
Psalm 26:2 Examine me, O Lord, and try me; Test my mind and my heart.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test?
What did you learn about yourself in reading this blog? What is God telling you to do (or stop doing)? Make plans as to what you can do starting today.
