What’s the goal? To be a disciple. To be on the paths of righteousness. To become the spitting image of Christ. How do you reach the goal? Following Jesus—WWJD? Jesus would do whatever pleased the Father, what He saw the Father doing.
Don’t be distracted from the goal. There is only one goal to aim at, Jesus. He is the Way; you are on the paths of righteousness for His sake, not yours. Your goal should never be to get your way in any given situation. Your goal should the Way.
