I place challenges before myself morally (for example, I want everybody who comes in contact with me to be able to trust my word implicitly), but how about intellectually? Where do I want to be in ten years? Who am I going to be in ten years? A lot of people have financial goals. A lot of people want to be living at a certain level of affluence after ten years. But we’re (Christians) people of the book, and the reason why we have a heritage of reading is because we are made in the image of God. And by the way, you’re going to take this knowledge with you into the next world. That adds a whole new dynamic to it—if we’re going to do that.
