This is my second installment of things I learned at the gym. Please read from number four, first.
Tie your shoes – As I run around the track, sometimes my shoes come untied. I get a little aggravated because, I don’t want to stop to retie them because it stops my process…my flow, and hinders me from keeping my pace. But, I realized very quickly that if I didn’t stop to tie my shoes, I could eventually trip on the strings and fall; which would be a huge embarrassment. Falling would be much worse than stopping to retie a shoe. The same thought applies in life. Many times, we don’t want to stop and take care of the small things because we think they’re just that “small things”. However, if you don’t handle the small things, they can and will turn into much bigger things, which could cause you to fall. A little thing could be eating a healthier breakfast, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or saying you’re sorry instead of refusing to apologize. Take care of the little things, and they’ll take care of you.
Matthew 25:21 –
“The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together! NLT
Love you to Life!
