Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive message minute.

I was surprised to see Peyton Manning trending in my twitter feed this morning.  Being from Tennessee, relocating to Indiana, I was able to enjoy Peyton as a QB for the Tennessee Vols and Indianapolis Colts, and I genuinely enjoy Peyton's personality.  In a news article by the Indy Star yesterday (catch it here), Manning shared this wisdom with some Hoosier student-athletes.

"If you ever think the little things don’t matter, and you can brush those aside, I promise you in whatever you’re doing, your game’s going to slip.”

Just like a good QB needs to continue working on the regular disciplines of the snap, huddle communication, and footwork, we too should focus on the fundamental daily disciplines in life.  The Bible says, Rejoice always (1 Thess 5:16), Pray continually (1Thess 5:17), be thankful in everything (1 Thess 5:18), read the Bible daily (Acts 17:11), and honor everyone (1 Peter 2:17).  These are some of the daily discipline fundamentals that often get lost in hectic schedules, and if they do, your game of life is going to slip. 

So today, pick one of these basic life fundamentals to focus on, study, and practice.  Decide to smile everywhere you go.  Decide to pray morning, noon, and night.  Decide to really meditate on the good Word of God.  Decide to treat others better than you want to be treated.  Trust me, focus on the fundamentals.  You'll be glad you did.
