Present your life to God every day & let Him empower you
Every day we run a lap in the race of life. While individuals live a different number of days (Ps. 90:12), each day matters in our relationships with people who matter forever. While we should prepare and plan for the months and years of our lives, we experience life day-by-day. The challenge to “make the most of our time” (Eph. 5:15) makes the transitions of each day critically important as we respond to the unrepeated opportunities we encounter daily.
Each race and every day has a starting point. This beginning requires positive traction which establishes essential momentum. In a sprint, there are starting blocks for the runners. In life, your source of traction determines the trajectory of your day. For the businessman focused only on earning money, his unrelenting greed may cause him to bounce out of bed. For the person obsessed with their appearance, the lengthy early morning exercise regimen may be the only way to start. While maintaining your health and earning a profit are not inappropriate values, making them your core motivation skews life in directions that impact relationships.
