Starting Well

‘If we don’t start, we can’t finish’

When I heard these words at the beginning of a meeting it made me think. This can also apply to aspects of our Christian life. Is it too difficult to start praying; we haven’t got time to read the Bible. We just don’t get started.

I think as a child I must have been a procrastinator; my mother was always telling me to ‘do it now.’ I would never do anything that day that I could do the next. I remember spending ages painting on a card the words ‘Do It Now.’ I then stuck this up on my wall. Not sure if this cured my lethargy!

If we don’t commit our lives to Christ and start walking on His path, our Christian journey will not continue. Spiritual growth will be the result of starting.
