So much is said about going the extra mile…and that’s a good thing. In fact, Jesus Christ taught us to go the extra mile in service to others.

But we often overlook the importance of going the first mile.

Joggers know, when in training, it is not always the third or fourth mile that is the toughest but rather it is the first mile! To just get started sometimes can be our biggest challenge.

How do you start your day?

You probably have a whole list of things that need to be accomplished. Sometimes there is so much stuff we are so overwhelmed that we don’t know where to start.

Other times we jump over some very important things knowing there is so many other things to do.

Start that first mile of the day by quietly spending a few moments in scripture and in prayer and you will find the rest of the day is much easier to navigate.

Remember, whether you are training for a big road race or simply for the daily race of life, the extra mile does not mean anything unless you faithfully go the first one.
