How to know if we’re “measuring up” spiritually

How to know if we’re “measuring up” spiritually

Blog
We have been doing some car shopping lately. Great fun. (Do you sense the sarcasm?) The way I shop is I gather info on 4-5 different cars and compare and contrast them…usually to a ridiculous degree. Why do I do that? Well, primarily, I want the best value for my dollar. I have a standard, set by me and Kara, each car has to reach – or it’s out! I think about how God does that. He has set a standard which we must strive to attain. We can’t request the standard be adjusted. It’s His! So, how do we know we’re getting there? Since it IS His standard, we have to know if we’re close to it, don’t we? How can we gauge our spiritual development? How do we know if we’re “measuring up” spiritually?

How do Christians weather hurricanes?

Harvey and Irma. Sounds like the nice old couple down the block. But, in the minds of many, those two names will forever recall far from pleasant memories. Experience is an incredible and sometimes cruel teacher. Most of us have no idea how we would react if we lost everything. Unfortunately, thousands of people today are dealing with that reality. The power of a hurricane is now clear to many firsthand. Sadly, they now have experience they would rather have done without. While watching the devastation of these hurricanes and the resulting behavior – in some sad cases lawlessness of a few people, in other cases efforts of great heroism – it’s become apparent: hurricanes of life have a way of exposing what is real and what we need to know about ourselves. In times of crisis, we gain wisdom that enables us to see who we really are, of what…o names will forever recall far from pleasant memories.
