Your Greatest Goal

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

Take a few minutes to think about this question: What is your greatest goal in life? 

(Think it through and write down your answer before continuing.)

Some may answer the above question as if it were asked during a job interview, saying whatever it is they believe will help them get the job. Some may answer by saying their greatest goal is to be a great spouse, parent, or friend. Others may say their greatest goal is to be the best at something. There are an infinite number of answers.

Whatever your answer may be, consider changing it to something else. Instead of desiring to be a great spouse, parent, friend, or being successful, consider making your greatest goal in life this — to know how wide, how long, how high, and how deep the love of God really is. 

Think about it. How would your life be different if your greatest ambition in life – the one thing you desire more than anything else – is to know how wide, how long, how high, and how deep the love of God really is?

READING & PRAYERS:

     EPHESIANS 3:14-19, JOHN 3:16-17, 1 JOHN 4:16

How would your life be different if your greatest ambition in life – the one thing you desire more than anything else – is to know how wide, how long, how high, and how deep the love of God really is? 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, today’s reading has been a great reminder that my goals and ambitions may not always be in alignment with Yours. Help me to remember each and every day that there is no greater goal than to know how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love truly is. May this be what I strive to know and experience every day. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
