Everybody has goals in their life. Maybe it’s to get married, finish university, or buy a house. A goal object is someone’s ambition. Something that you aim for.
Psalm 119:1-5 gives us the goal of being obedient. It doesn’t matter how old we are, we can always be obedient, especially to the Lord. That’s something that we can aim to do.
Paul talked about goals a lot. For example, in 2 Timothy 4:7-8, Paul knew that he was soon going to die. But he knew that during his life, he had set his eyes on the goal and the reward waiting for him in heaven. All Christians are running the same race and are aiming for that same reward. We have our eyes set on the same goal (Hebrews 12:1-2) which is the Lord Jesus.
