Today my husband and I went to lunch together sans kids. We had a great time, I had mango salsa cheesecake, and we talked--really talked--for two hours!
Have I mentioned that I have the best husband ever?
Anyway, in the course of our conversation, I realized how like becoming a better writer becoming more Christ-like is.
Editors choose your work because of its strengths and reject it because of its weaknesses. In order to increase your chances of an editor wanting to buy your work, you need to focus on your strengths and make them even stronger, and determine your weaknesses and work on making those less weak.
It is like that with your Christian walk too. Identify your strengths. Hospitality? Teaching? Encouragement? Do those things, work those spiritual muscles, and become even better at those.
Also, identify your weakness. Giving? Mercy? Evangelism? Work on those weaknesses, step out of your comfort zone, ask God for some help in developing these areas.
You might be surprised what happens.
