Growth is more than just not going the wrong direction.
It’s possible to stop going the wrong direction and yet still be headed nowhere.
You can stop going the wrong direction and still not grow.
Growth requires movement, change, adjustment and going the right direction.
The Apostle Paul said, “But you… are a man of God; so run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.” (1 Timothy 6:11).
Notice the two verbs in that verse: Run / Pursue.
Run from the bad. Pursue the good.
Don’t just stop your bad habits… start new (good) ones!
Today is a great day to begin some new disciplines.
Growth demands constant motion. Pursue the good. Go after the best.
Yesterday’s motions don’t provide enough momentum to keep you going in the right direction today or tomorrow – just like yesterday’s meal won’t continue to sustain you.
Take some new steps toward growth today!
