Practice makes perfect

17 May

In sports, we drill this into our athletes. Practice, practice, practice. You play like you practice. The more you practice, the more you will automatically do the right thing when there is no time to think. All of this is true. Yes, we will make mistakes, but practice really does help when the heat is on.

This is also true in life. We would never say we are practicing in our vocations, but we are: Every day, you learn in your job. Every day (if you are paying attention) you pick up something that will help you in the future. If this is true, you are getting better and better at what you do. There are some exceptions to this rule, but for the most part, it is true.

What if we apply the same principles to life in Christ?? What if we realized that THEY DO APPLY, whether we consciously do it or not? What if I wrote that the discipline we exercise, every day, DOES determine what we do when the pressure is on, when the chips are down, when there is no time to think, just time to act??

Every day, we have a chance to practice our life in Christ. Every day is preparation for those times when the pressure is on . . .

And, practice DOES make perfect. Have a great practice today!
