We have talked a great deal about goals lately. Many Christians confuse a God-given goal that grows within them with human obsession. First of all, God-given goals guide us in life. Human obsession only drives us to empty future. But maybe, the greatest difference between the two can be seen in our present. It is required to sacrifice things in our present for a future goal but we will never neglect current responsibilities for a future goal. God expects sacrifice but he also requires faithfulness in the present to receive the future.
