Day 5: Commitment

It's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success that you seek. Mario Andretti

If we want something as noble as a life devoted to God, it will take a level of commitment beyond the ordinary. The renewal of life that we seek is neither ordinary nor casual - it is a goal that will take extraordinary effort. If you want a realistic comparison, becoming a servant of God is more akin to the devotion needed to become an Olympic athlete, as opposed, say, to the casual commitment of a weekend softball player. But, for those seeking an existence of genuine significance, Christianity is the only life that will fulfill that quest.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3, NIV
