GROW

A few weeks ago I was speaking with a young woman about her spiritual life. She mentioned that she had not been to church in a while. She is athletic, she has a personal trainer and goes to the gym every day. So I mentioned that I had not been to the gym in a while. She started in on me not going to the gym. "You know you won't get results if you only go to the gym once a week, right? You have a little girl, you need to take your health more seriously. It is about eating healthy and working out regularly." I agreed. Then I said, "You know you will not grow spiritually if you are only participating in church life randomly. It is about worship, fellowship, and serving others. But those need to be done regularly in order for you to grow." She agreed. Unfortunately, I do not believe this has led to her engaging in her spiritual life much. But to be fair, I've only hit the gym twice since then. I guess you could say that both of our actions speak to our priorities. This Sunday we are starting a new series that takes a look at our spiritual lives. If we want to grow in it, then there are certain virtues which we must adopt and practice. For six weeks I will be speaking about these virtues and asking you to practice them. I know that if we all practice them together, we will individually and collectively grow. I look forward to this time together!
