Have you ever thought about your spiritual goals?
If you’re anything like me, you may have physical fitness goals, retirement goals, project goals… so many more goals.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you and I probably have the same Ultimate Goal: Get to Heaven. (Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think I am.)
And, if you’re still a little like me, you may not ever thought of having a spiritual goal you wanted to work on… something you can attain in the next 30-90 days or so.
Why not? We’re taught goal-setting at work and at the gym and at school.
I think part of the issue is that it’s so easy NOT to think about. You don’t see your spiritual condition hanging over the top your jeans when you look in the mirror, it’s not there when you check your bank balance.
It’s deeply personal and easy to hide – even from yourself.
But really, have you ever paused to thing about setting a spiritual goal for yourself and what that would entail?
What is it that I would want to accomplish? Here’s the first 3 things that come to mind for my personal goals:
- Better Prayer Habits
- Make confession a regular habit, not just Christmas and Easter
- Attend Daily Mass at least once per week
In the coming weeks, our blog posts will be dedicated to sussing out the best spiritual goals, and making progress towards achieving them.
