  Spiritual Fitness Check

Training is aimless without clear goals. Spiritual Fitness checks make sure you’re training effectively and progressing toward your goals.

Signs You're Living It Out

  • Enjoyment of God’s gifts (e.g., money friends, opportunities, jobs) without clinging to them
  • A willingness to follow God, even when it hurts (losing the deal rather than compromising integrity, losing the relationship rather than compromising morals, etc.)
  • A willingness to follow God, even outside of one’s comfort zone (engaging needed but risky conversations, following God’s promptings without full understanding)
  • A rested spirit and an absence of striving
