The Law of Navigation: Jesus Charts the Course for His Disciples
Jesus provided good instruction for his disciples on issues such as integrity, anxiety, convictions, problem solving, greed, jealousy, priorities, and trusting God. Why these topics? Because Jesus intended to navigate life for His followers, to teach them how to live successfully.
If we were to condense the Lord’s perspective on success in life, we might say that success involves:
- Decisions: We must know the truth and accept it.
- Servanthood: We must find a need and fill it.
- Determination: We must face a challenge and meet it.
- Sacrifice: We must lose our life to find it.
- Preparation: We must develop a plan and follow it.
- Action: We must discover God’s will and obey it.
- A gift: We must discover God’s will and obey it.
- Durability: We must be tenacious and finish well.
