No Small Choices

by | June 17, 2024

Yesterday was Father’s Day, and I was overwhelmed by all the love and kindness from my kids and sweet Erin. But as night set in, I began to think of all the things I wanted to change and improve as a dad, husband, and Christian. I got up this morning still thinking about yesterday, and it dawned on me that some of the smallest things that I have done as a dad were the most meaningful to my children—the little moments, the small choices. I have started reading a book about building habits, and I am fascinated to learn that it’s the little choices that we make that determine whether the battle is lost or won. In building healthy habits, we start by making a “small” and incremental change, coupled with habits we already have, to develop a strong, new habit. I realized that no one will grow and flourish when living an overwhelmed life. A choice must be made. A dear brother in Christ told me this last week: “It’s simple: walk in the Spirit, and you won’t be walking in the flesh.”
Galatians 5:16-17
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”It’s true. If I choose to walk yielded and surrender to the Lord and His Spirit, I will be a better person. The Lord will give me the wisdom to make those seemingly “small” changes to become a better man. I want to be a better dad and Christian this year than I have ever been. What am I choosing today that will make that a reality tomorrow?
Be encouraged.
