God is more interested in us being someone than getting somewhere. Instead of measuring our worth by what we achieve and acquire, the Lord wants to see us develop Christ-like virtues. We should not rush through life grabbing what we can along the way. Rather we should focus on the real thing; the main thing that life is all about—becoming more like Jesus.
Character never develops instantaneously. If all we care about is getting as much as we can as fast as we can— He will do what it takes to keep us from self-destruction… …even if that means forcing us to slow down and re-examine our life’s direction.
