“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14, ESV)
What is your spiritual goal? Do you really want to get the prize? Do you want to grow to be the man or woman God wants you to be? Do you want to pay the price of the spiritual disciplines you need to practice in order to grow? Or will you be content to sort of muddle through your Christian life and, at the end, have to sum it all up as no more meaningful than a trip to the corner store for a loaf of bread? The choice is yours. What will it be?
