Are you growing?  Ephesians 4:15: “but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ…”

Growing up. How intentional have you been lately about moving forward  in the dimensions of life and throwing off the shackles of passivity?

After all, passivity suggests:

  • I've arrrived. Although I'd never assert such a thing, it's suggested when I'm cemented in place.
  • I'm comfortable. I know, I marriage could be better, my relationships are few and weak, my fathering is part-time at best...but the discomfort I now experience (knowing those things) might be better than the discomfort I'd experience from intentional growth.
  • I can't. At my age...with my busy as I am....(insert favorite phrase here) no one improves his fitness, grows his long-term marriage, changes his attitudes toward work, begins to win the day in his spiritual life.

Intentionality is crucial. We want to help you – by getting you with growing people – and connecting you with resources for your growth – in the Christian life, in marriage, parenting and in your work and business. We will connect you with others with whom you can gain accountability. So today: start the process of rejecting passivity.
