When I begin a new window of time in my life I ask two questions:
- What are the vices in my life that I am trying to uproot?
- What are the virtues in my life that I am trying to cultivate?
Virtue only comes through patient, humble, persevering effort. If you want more virtue in your life you have to persevere and work at it. Those who work at growing in virtue with the grace of God become more virtuous.
This is how we become more virtuous. It is part of our humanity.
“Lord, how do you want me to work on virtue in this next season of my life.”
