Once Upon a Time

It's only in fairy tales that one great act of valor settles all future disturbances and causes everyone to live happily ever after. In reality, a life that is blessed and God-focused results from continued obedience and daily perseverance. It reflects an understanding that each day is an exercise in discipline and choosing to the right thing. When you understand the principle that you won't "accidentally" end up a better person you muster up the focus and energy to do those things each day. It's a simple principle of being repetitively obedient with our eyes focused on the ultimate prize, and the will to keep doing those things that lead to a God-centered future.

Jesus didn't call us to a single act. He called us to a single attitude.
