Make every effort to grow

Sunset (sooc) by *megan_elzey*
 "Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sin." 2 Peter 1:5-9

I do not always seek to possess these characteristics in increasing measure. Sometimes I don't even possess these characteristics! I sometimes forget that I have been cleansed from my past mistakes, from the person I was before Christ saved me from it all. But God is always patient with me, even when I am frustrated with myself, and He always leads me back to the truth. Thank God that He is faithful!
