Forgetting The Past

Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own, but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. — Philippians 3:13.

Some read the above to say that our focus should be on letting go of worldly attachments and focusing on achieving spiritual growth. Sounds a little like the Lenten Season doesn’t it?

Others consider today’s lesson to apply to your own life and goals — whether they be about personal growth, achieving objectives, or finding happiness.

Our lesson encourages a forward-looking mindset which can be a powerful tool for motivation and positive change, be it worldly or spiritual.

Consider the Lenten season as a forty day self-improvement sabbatical. It can be an experience where you abandon your past and  emerge with the knowledge of God’s call for you and with the tools to accomplish whatever challenges lies ahead.
