“No change can be made in one jump. Many small wins can generate big successes.” -James Kouzes & Barry Posner
I look at myself like I do my Mac Computer: sometimes I need a software upgrade. Now I’m Christian 4.0 but God wants to take me higher. I need to become more disciplined, to read more, to manage time better—I’m always me, but before long I’m a better version—I’m Christian 5.0. Over time I upgrade to version 6.0, 7.0, etc., each a small win that eventually, by God’s grace, generates a big success. There are likely ways that God wants us all to upgrade. Ask yourself: “How can I get better?”
I can do all things through him who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13, ESV).
