My mentor, Jim Rohn, often spoke about having a personal philosophy. What he meant was to be intentional and have a plan for how you would live in each area of your life. For example, among others, we should have a financial philosophy, a relationship philosophy, and first and foremost a spiritual philosophy. When it comes to being a disciple of Jesus, the spiritual philosophy is what must drive all others.
If we mess this one up, we will not recover. But if we get it right, we can overcome any other failure or tragedy in life. What’s your personal philosophy when it comes to following Jesus? Have you ever thought about it?
