Keep Your Tools Sharp

Most of us want to make a difference, whether it be on a global scale, or simply in our one-on-one relationships.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:5-8

Re-read this passage – it describes the tools that continually need sharpening in order to be effective. Get them out, sharpen them and live life in such a way that these qualities continually increase in measure. Don’t hold yourself to perfection, but insist on forward motion.
