One thing with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us. (Michael Cibenco, teacher)
We’re well into 2019, and maybe it’s time to evaluate what progress we’re making. How’s it going with you? Have things gone a bit sour so that you’re looking back to last year, wishing things were like they were back then? Well, as Cibenco suggests, looking back may be just the reason that we’re not doing as well as we’d hoped. Let’s begin looking to the future with hope.
Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. (Philippians 12:13)
