Good Qualities

Today's reading: 2 Peter 1:1-15

Peter provides us with a progressive list of qualities that we should strive to possess and put into practice to have and then maintain a strong walk with God (see 2 Peter 1:5). As I took in this list and the verses surrounding it, I was prompted to ask myself a number of questions: Do I possess these qualities? Am I putting these qualities into practice? Am I growing in these areas, and how? It was a good assessing exercise that helped me recognize some areas where I need to improve and work a little harder, but also helped me see some areas where I'm doing alright.

So now it's your turn to do a little self-assessing. Do you possess the qualities Peter puts before us in verse 5? Are you putting them into practice? And are you (or how are you) growing in these areas? Tami
