Small Taste

It can be hard to keep pushing towards a goal when you don't think you're being successful. It's the
reason people give up on exercise programs in the early stages, why couples stop going to marriage counseling, and the rationale used when trying to kick an addictive habit. To be motivated to keep working you have to feel that you are making some headway or the process becomes too discouraging. It's an important reminder for us to celebrate when we shave 20 seconds off our run time, go a whole day without a cigarette, respond more kindly to our family than usual, or spend even  just five minutes reading your Bible. They are all small yet vital steps in the process of maturity.

When you're trying to grow you've got to have a taste of victory-no matter how small-to encourage you to keep going.
