Preparation for a Journey
Most people don't want to embark on a journey without preparation. Not only do they pack, but they also check their itinerary and determine how long the trip will take. Likewise, when we begin the journey of conversion, we should evaluate what we hope to learn and gain by following Jesus, our Guide. Gauge your daily progress by looking at what you are not "doing" for God. Then review what you are doing to advance God's kingdom. What needs improvement?
