Looking Back

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. (Zig Ziglar, late motivational speaker)

We’re approaching the end of the year, and some of us are beginning to think of our resolutions for the New Year. But, before we formulate our hopes for 2020, perhaps we should use this year-end time to reflect on 2019. As Ziglar suggests, it’s not so much what we have accomplished but what we have become. Let’s evaluate our progress: what have we become?

The Apostle Paul: “I have not achieved [perfection], but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead . . . (Philippians 3:13)
