Most people get the big things in life right. It is easy to get the big things in life right.

It is much more difficult to get the small things in life right.

I am passionate about the small things in life. I want to be a man that gets the small things right. I want to be a husband that gets the small things right. I want to be a friend that gets the small things right. I want to be a pastor that gets the small things right. I want to be a follower of God that gets the small things right.

When it comes to drinking the koolaid that says that getting the small things in life right are some of the most important things or moments you and I could ever do or experience, I have already had three or four glasses.

Getting day 1 of marriage right is much easier then getting day 1,359 right.

Being a good friend during a crisis is much easier then during the monotonous, routine rhythm of everyday life.

Bringing my ministry A game is much easier during a massive event like Sulphur Springs Workcamp then during a small group of eight people sitting around my living room during a Bible study.

Being a good follower of Christ the days after a life-changing, mountain-top experience is much easier then six months later when the freshness and emotion of that same moment has worn off.

I want to get the small (but not so easy) things in life right. 

Do you?
