Usain Bolt became the fastest 100m sprinter in 2009 with a time of 9.58 seconds. It’s hard to imagine the four years of gruelling training he must have gone through, for that 10 seconds. There are other people who try to do 10 seconds of work and live off that effort for the next four years!
This olympian trained frequently; had an excellent diet, slept well, and drank no alcohol. His eyes were fixed on a gold medal. Proverbs 16:16-17 says ‘How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver! The highway of the upright avoids evil; those who guard their ways preserve their lives.’ (NIV)
When we make better decisions, the outcome will speak of God’s Kingdom. Make sure to put the effort into your walk with God as you are racing for an eternal prize. Let your decisions be focused on God.
Making better decisions will always reap a harvest in God’s Kingdom.
Help me Father make better decisions, not just for me, but also for everything I do in Your Kingdom. Amen.
What decisions have you made in the last year? How did they turn out and what could you have done differently?
