As believers, we have been called to pursue excellence in all areas of our lives. The Bible teaches us to continually grow and develop, to use our gifts and talents to their fullest potential, and to strive for excellence in all that we do. This calls for constant improvement in every area of our lives.
However, it is important to stress that improvement is not about perfection, rather, it is about progress. It is taking small steps every day towards becoming better, by learning new things, developing new skills, and practicing what you know, and striving to become the person that God has created you to be.
Our opening text, culled from a letter from Apostle Paul to Timothy, speaks of the need to practice consistently what he had learnt, so that his improvement and progress can be evident for all to see. This shows that improvement is a process that requires consistent learning, practice and discipline.
Thus, it is not enough to study the Word of God daily, attend seminars, review feedbacks from clients and customers, etc. without giving due diligence to itemize and internalize what has been learnt, and then to spend each day working towards implementing them in your life, career or business.
Therefore, make a daily commitment to consciously work towards improvement in every area of your life. Be in readiness to practice the principles that you know, devoting your life to ensuring that you get better, and more productive in every area of your life, so that your progress can be evident to all.
