How do you grow? Whether it’s in your job, in your marriage, as a parent, or in your faith, are you growing? Are you taking steps to move beyond what you know now to a place that you don’t know yet? The journey is not comfortable and often times a little rocky with a misstep here and there. As a leader, you should require this of the people that work for you. As a husband or wife, you should continuously look to grow in your marriage to each other. As a parent, you should challenge and encourage your children to take that first step into becoming the person they were meant to be fulfilling the purpose God has in store for their lives.
We all know “this you”. We’re comfortable with this you. It’s not until you see “that you” that you realize the growth you have yet to see. I love this video from my friends at Soul City Church in Chicago. They expect their community to grow regardless of where they are in their faith. Take a few minutes to watch it and then think about “that you” that you want to be.
