How you start the day impacts how you finish

I read recently someone said, “like a church sermon lasting the whole day long, so does your intentions last the entire day.”

When you make your intentions clear in the morning, like hearing a great sermon or speech, words touch you on the shoulder later in the day.

They remind you of the main point of a speech, like Ronald Reagan’s Farewell, Shining City on a Hill, or Barack Obama’s speech on Grace in Charleston.

For fans of historical speeches, a great new podcast by Presidential historian Jon Meachum, It Was Said, that features both.

I challenge each one of you to name your intentions each morning for 30 days and journal against how you progress towards a life of grace.
