The Next Level 1: Good Intentions

Odds are that in some way, you want to improve. This series has been designed to look at principles in Scripture that can help us get to the next level of personal growth.

Matthew 6:31-32:  (ESV) Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. ESV

In the history of calming down has anyone ever calmed down by being told to calm down.

Matthew 6:33-34: (ESV) 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

2 Corinthians 6:2: (ESV)For he says, “In a favorable time I listened to you,and in a day of salvation I have helped you.”Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

We get to the next level not with good intentions but with being intentional now.
