As believers, we’ll always continue to grow in God. Because God is perfect and infinite and as long as we live here in our flesh on earth, we’ll always have areas of improvement.

During this growth process, we should be mindful not to be hard on ourselves. We may have thought we had it all together, but we will discover another layer that we can perfect. We may we have thought we heard God, but we really only responded to our emotions. This revelation of improvement is not there to condemn us or make us feel bad, but to better us.

We will never have it all together and we will never “arrive.” From our attitude, to the management of our finances, to how we treat people, we will always have an opportunity to grow.

Don’t beat yourself up about the problematic areas God reveals in your life. Just look at them as an opportunity to be more like Christ.

Ephesians 4:15 Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.
