Sunday to Monday | Grow

On Sunday, Dr. Tammy Heflebower spoke about the roles of effort and attitude in our success. She gave practical examples of how a focus on process and perseverance leads to greater achievement than a focus on outcomes. And she tied those ideas to Jesus' story of the mustard seed....and the way Jesus led his own life on earth. 

Take Sunday into the rest of your week with these questions:

  • How can you redefine success, focusing more on process than on outcomes? Think of an immediate application to your personal, professional or family life.

  • Think of a time you used effort/attitude statements to compliment another. How might that be more important than the actual completed project or outcome?

  • Our Lord provided a prominent model of strength of effort, character, and attitude. Who else can you regard who signifies such qualities?

  • Think of a time where adults modeled inappropriate behavior for our youth. How might you take a stand?

  • As we consider our young people—how might we continue to be a model of process? Of struggle? Of perseverance? These, truly are the skills for responsible citizens and caring, contributing human beings.
