It’s a New Year, but are you the same you? At my church, Elizabeth Baptist Church, our word for 2019 is intentional. To be intentional is do something on purpose. Being intentional isn’t the same as having good intention.
For example, millions of boys dream of becoming Major Leaguers. But many of those dreams fail because while the boys had good intentions of practicing with focus, they failed to do so because their hope was enough.
I believe that being intentional is the reward for being committed and disciplined.
A commitment is a promise you make to yourself before you can make it to others. Discipline is doing the things you need to do even when you don’t want to do them.
