Many people confuse milestones with goals.
This is unfortunate because milestones while important are just steps toward a goal. Go long and create big goals and then actively work on milestones to get there. Leading a good Christian life is perhaps the most rewarding goal. Commit to daily milestones to work toward that goal and you'll lead a happy fulfilling life along the way.
Although I myself have grounds for confidence even in the flesh. Paul’s Autobiography. If anyone else thinks he can be confident in flesh, all the more can I.
