Today's Decisions Determine Who You'll Be Tomorrow

I just finished listening to a great sermon by Rany Alcorn in which he challenges us to:

"Live a life of endurance. The closing question: at the end of this life, what will you wish you’d done more of? What will you wish you’d done less of?

Why not ask God to empower you to spend the rest of your life closing the gap between what you’ll wish you would have done and what you are now doing today in the little choices of life that will make us the people we will be"

If you can find the time, I totally recommend listening to this sermon, or at least reading the highlights of the message. You can do both by clicking here.

Thanks for the link to this article. So far, I have only had a chance to read the main points, but I really liked the definition of endurance: Endurance consists of a "long obedience in the same direction." It reminded me of a chapel sermon at PCC. I can't remember who the preacher was but he said that to follow God's will for your life often only required doing the little things we know we should be doing (i.e. QT, praying)

I look forward to reading the rest of the article.

It's so easy to forget the little things. I didn't remember that chapel speaker, so thanks for the reminder!
