For the month of January, we’re focusing on goal setting in light of Luke 2:52: “Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” This verse provides an excellent roadmap to see which areas in our lives we need to be growing in, no matter what our age happens to be.
Here’s the challenge. Set a long-term goal for this year in each of these areas:
- Growing in wisdom (application of knowledge)
- Growing in stature (physical ability and maturity)
- Growing in “favor with God” (depth of relationship)
- Growing in “favor with man” (compassion, graciousness, and love)
Be sure to pray about this challenge and ask the Lord what areas He would have you to specifically focus on in the new year! Listen throughout the month for encouragement in setting goals and seeking the Lord in all that we do. As January progresses, let us know how you’re doing with the challenge: we’d love to share some of that feedback in our CMOW episode!
