Goal setting is important in life. The effort you put forth in reaching your goal is rewarded in many ways. Success, monetary gain, self esteem, etc. But the most Important goal is key!

The Most Important Goal

Are you a goal setter? What is a goal? Do you have one? What is your most important goal in life?

I read an article one day by a notable young Minister and it really made me think about goal setting. How important goal setting is and how goal setting plays a very important part in your day to day living. He said and I quote in part the following:

“When God gave us the dream of opening a coffeehouse on Capitol Hill a few years ago, I immediately started noticing everything about coffeehouses. Before I had that dream, the only thing I noticed was the taste of my drink. After the dream was conceived, I noticed everything from signage and seating to store layout and product branding. The dream of starting a coffeehouse created a category in my reticular activating system, and I started collecting ideas.

That is why goal setting is so important. Goals create categories in your reticular activating system. Once you set the goal, you start noticing anything and everything that will help you accomplish the goal. That is the way God has wired us. The brain is a goal-seeking organism. When you set a goal, it creates structural tension in your brain, and the brain will seek to close the gap between you and your goal.”
That is so true, when you really think about it. A person without goals will find themselves living to no particular end. Their existence here on earth will be a life lived at its worst end. Goals are set points reached or not reached and they determine your successes or failures in life.

A Goal is the purpose toward which effort is directed; an objective.(See the American Heritage College dictionary.)
One title of a secular song I remember from days gone by was, “You can make it if you try.” Many people sung that song in the Community that I grew up in but as I remember, not many applied or took that song to heart. Still it reigns true today as it did then. You have to have goals in life and you can reach them if you try with faith and trust in God.
In the Bible, you and I have the blessed assurance that “All things are possible and we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us.” We can obtain all of the goals that we set for ourselves in life according to the will and by grace of God.
All of this is good but the most important goal in life is Unity with God and your fellowman in Christ Jesus. Make this YOUR number one goal. Seek first the Kingdom of God and you will truly be blessed in your goal setting with the most important goal in life. Think about it carefully!
