Little things, part II

The second part of a series on things that are often little but never small.

Little changes

Imagine …

getting up one-half hour earlier for 30 days

what would you do with fifteen more hours?

…  spending fifteen less minutes on the Internet for 30 days

what would you do with another 7 1/2 hours?

reading twenty pages a day for 30 days

what would you learn from six hundred pages?

asking a different person “how are you” sincerely every day for 30 days

what would you do with 30 opportunities to change a life?

saying “Wonderful” when asked how you are

simply because you are alive and your life is precious

what would you do with all those chances to explain why?

running fast for ten minutes every day for 30 days

what would three hundred minutes of running do for you?

sitting still, listening to God silently for ten minutes every morning and every evening

for a whole year.

what would you hear Him say in 7,300 minutes

122 hours

more than five whole days?

Little changes matter.

  1. That is really thought provoking!… especially the last one! It reminds me of James 4:8 “Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you…”

    I’ve also heard that the average person (on the east coast, anyway :-P )spends about 6 years of his/her life stopped at a red light. Oy vey!
