Now to today’s teaching…

According to reports on the wikipedia website, personal development is a process of individual self-development and the development of others. It is a continuous search for principles and methods to improve yourself, skills etc.

It is a conscious pursuit of personal growth. The definition continues , “It is not limited to self-help but includes formal and informal activities for developing others in roles such as teacher, guide, counselor, manager, life coach or mentor.

It can be carried out in the context of both individual level and institution level”. I agree completely with these definitions except for the fact that the God factor was not given the rightful place in the definitions.

Christian Personal Development is therefore a process of allowing God and His principles to guide your conscious pursuit of personal growth through the expansion of self-awareness and knowledge, the improvement of personal skills and the development of others.

Moses’ personal development from his fumbling start with God in Exodus 3 and 4 to becoming one of the world’s most effective leaders and servant of God could only be possible because he allowed God and His principles to shape him.
