All of us want our efforts to make a difference and to accomplish the goals we have in mind. It doesn’t matter what our work is—large or small, at home, in the marketplace, or at church. We invest our time and energy and we look for a return on our investment. We strategize and work and pray, asking God to bless our efforts. Whose goals are you seeking to accomplish—yours or God’s? Where might you need to lay down your goals to accomplish His?
“These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.”—Isaiah 66:2
