"be intentional with your time. if you're going to grow with God, you have to choose to set the priorities. you're never just going to drift into godliness or maturity, it's just too much against the flow, it's too much of an uphill battle seige. you've got to choose to grow in godliness. you want to grow with God? great, how much are you diving into the word of God? how serious is your community or your accountability? are you memorizing scripture? are you growing in your abilities? are you working to grow in your abilities to teach or share Christ? make God's priorities the first and most important part of your day."
