Reed Markham said "Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow." While I sat letting that sink in to my heart of a father for my daughter, I realized how this applies to other arenas of my life. Particularly, I realized how much it applies to being a follower of Jesus.
After we decided to follow Jesus, many of us quit deciding to follow Jesus.
At the heart of this quote and its challenge is 'intentionality'. No matter how great my faith seems to be today, I still have to decide to follow Jesus tomorrow. Following Jesus is not a one time decision.
