Monday: Read Philippians 3:12-14. Goal-setting is a spiritual responsibility that makes a statement of faith. What does te word "goal" mean to you? Would you describe yourself as goal-oriented? Why or why not? When is the last time you set a goal? What was the result? Have you prayerfully set any goals for 2015? What are they?
Tuesday: Read 2 Corinthians 5:9. Goals focus our lives. When setting goals, a question to ask is: "Will this goal honor God?" Think of small and large goals you have had. What are the differences you have experienced between a goal that honored God versus one that was self-serving? Why is God so concerned that our goals honor Him?
Wednesday: Read 1 Corinthians 14:1. Why is it important to have goals motivated by love? What difference do you see in goals that are made through the filter of love from those that do not consider love when they are made?
Thursday: Read Zechariah 4:6. What is the secret to success, according to Zechariah 4:6? How does let go of their own strength and grab hold of God's? When is a a person time when you remember leaning on God's strength to get you through? Where might you need lean into His strength today?
Friday: Read Romans 12:1-2. The greatest benefit of a goal is not what I accomplish, but what I become in the process by the work of God's Spirit. What does that mean to you? What areas of life (spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, relational, financial or vocational) is God leading you to set goals to transform your life?
Saturday: Read Philippians 3:12-14. Ask Jesus what would be His one word for you this year. What do you sense that the Holy Spirit is telling that word is? How do you you think and pray that word will impact you in the year ahead and beyond? Who can you share that word with who will pray for you in the year ahead? When will you share that word with them? (Why not ask what their word for 2015 is as well!)
