Today, we’re wrapping up a four-part message series called “Small Things, Big Difference.” And I’ll tell you, just as we get into this, personally, this is my favorite of all the messages that we’ve studied. And we’re going to cover one small thought that we’ll come back to again and again, that I want to say, I honestly believe, for some of you, has the potential to propel you forward into more of what God wants for you than you’ve ever experienced before. Today, what I want to do is talk to you about the power of our habits, or we might say our “disciplines,” because we are what we repeatedly do. We are what we repeatedly do.
This week, we talk about the power of our words. In the beginning, was the word and the word was with God. And the word was God. And the word became flesh. Whenever God created the world, he did it with the spoken word; our words are incredibly powerful. In fact, Solomon said this about our words in Proverbs 18:21, he said, “The tongue has massive power.” What kind of power does the tongue have? He said, “The tongue has the power of life and of death.” In other words, the words that we speak can be life-giving words or the words we speak can be life-taking words.
The most important thing doesn’t always get the first priority – but it should. What will it take to stop being distracted by the urgent and start focusing on the meaningful? Today, let’s decide to put First Things First.
This message teaches about how to prioritize your day, week, month, and year with practical ways to put God first.
