Living a life of excellence that fits you
For the next few weeks I am doing a series on living a life of excellence. The life of excellence I am speaking of, is the one that Christ has called us to. The ultimate goal of life, above being a great mom, faithful wife and all around great person, is to be more like Jesus.
The thing that I have always struggled with in this regard is comparing my goals for excellence with the goals of others, or my achievements/lack of achievements with those of others as well. All along I should have been comparing myself with the author of the life of excellence Himself, Jesus.
I am going to show you the things that I have learned or have been trying to learn through the years. I have an interesting situation in that we have two sets of kids essentially, we have two kids 19 and 17, then two kids 8 and 6. We were given an opportunity to grow as parents and in our marriage continuously. So, I have learned some things early on and now we are learning even more.
I hope that you enjoy this series, and learn as I learn along with you. The Lord has shown me so many great things about life and myself along this journey.
