Growing Upward.

Pharisee: (noun) one who believes more than they do.

I absolutely love my Christian Doctrine class! Dr. Morgan is amazing. I kept wishing I could handwrite as fast as I type because I wanted to jot down almost everything he said! Scripture references are like periods at the end of his sentences. That's another thing I love.

Since today was our first actual class session, he spent the hour and a half talking about why theology is important and the attitude we need to approach theology with. I felt like I was sitting in Conviction 101 when he said his definition of a Pharisee. It was good conviction though, conviction that stirs me to action.

I feel like I can be a Pharisee. Head knowledge doesn't always turn into action in my case. So instead of just sitting here and moping about my pathetic pharisaical nature, I am making it my goal for the semester to grow up and to grow upward.

So here we go! The semester has started and I have set a new goal! (It doesn't have to be new year's day to have a resolution!)
