We acknowledge, Lord, that it’s easy to live without objectives. It takes nothing, nothing but indifference and indolence. God, help us to sit down and set some objectives, some goals. If, no more than to know You and teach Your Word, that others may be fed and grow, to start there. Whatever it is, Father, help us to set a goal, the energy, the spirit, to go at the courage of conviction, to pay any price. —John Macarthur
