I was raised in a Christian home and have heard 2 Peter 1:5-7 my entire life, but lately it has been popping up in many different ways. I have seen it on blogs. I have read it books, and the more I have seen it the more I have realized that it paints the picture of a staircase and how we grow in our faith and how it applies to my life.
“But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.”–2 Peter 1:5-7
It is an exercise in each and every area of our life. One that we have to do everyday to grow stronger in our faith.
