A Theology of Goal-Setting

January 6, 2019
Passage: Proverbs 16:9

Our greatest frustrations in life are frequently caused by unmet expectations. We don't mind not getting a new car in 2018, unless we had planned on buying one. We don't care that we didn't take an Alaskan cruise last year, unless someone had promised to take us. Unmet expectations are a key source of frustration. This is especially true when we set goals for ourselves, and then don't reach those objectives. So how do we set ourselves up for success when we set resolutions for 2019? Fortunately, Scripture tells us how to make plans God's way.
