Starting Small

Some people might believe that someone has become an overnight sensation, but the truth is that preparation and vision breed success. It's the long term commitment to doing the right things each day that will help you achieve big things. You don't win championships on the first day of practice, but you do begin to develop the habits and skills that can eventually lead you there. It's what Eugene Peterson calls "a long obedience in the same direction" because there is no real shortcut to doing big things and achieving grand vision in your life. Jonathan Golden may have said it best," Every once in a while God gives us something big to do. Every day He gives us something small to do."

What small thing are you diligently working on today that is part of a grander vision for your life?
