Some progress is easy to measure.

My oldest son turns 15 tomorrow.  He’s another year older and closer to adulthood.

Easy.

When I read my kindle, I can see how much I have read.

29%, now 30%.

Easy.

But sometimes, progress isn’t quite so tangible.

How do you know how much closer you’re getting to that promotion?

Are you 5% closer than yesterday?  10%?  Will it take 6 months, or a year, or perhaps even longer?

In your faith, how do you know if you’re getting holier?

Are you 5% more like God than yesterday?  Are your prayers 10% better?

Maybe you can’t always measure the progress.

But you can still take action to ensure that you are getting closer.
