This past week, I preached on training. My main point was that in order to become the people we are called and created to be we have to work at it. We have innate gifting, but that’s not enough. We have to train ourselves through spiritual disciplines and other practices.
One discipline I’ve decided to pick up in response to my own studying and reflecting is reading. I want to discipline myself to read 50 books this year. I’m a couple weeks behind, so this will basically break down to 1 book a week. I’m going to try and stay accountable by posting reviews here.
