It's halfway through January and time to reconsider our new year's goals/resolutions/half-hearted attempts. Here's a thoughtful excerpt from a recent post on The Gospel Coalition blog by Mike Cosper. The two points that seemed most profound to me were these:
- Rather than being motivated by youth culture and absurd (and shifting) standards of beauty, we should be motivated by stewardship: how ready is your body to serve others?
- When thinking about aging, rather than focusing on fighting the signs of age, or living in fear of the effects of aging, we should seek health for the sake of longevity. Should the Lord allow, we want to lovingly and enthusiastically serve God and others for the long haul.
