Our culture tells us we need to "get ahead." What if Kingdom living wasn't "climbing the ladder" of success, but being the ladder for others to reach success?
We try to protect ourselves but every person and circumstance in life leaves a mark on us.
It's attractive to think we can work and effort our way toward a better version of ourselves. With God, the best version of "you" is the REAL "you" with all of its imperfections and weaknesses.
We all love comfort, but sometimes it takes a little discomfort to jar us from complacency in order to embrace change and growth.
