A failure to act. . .is an action that is sure to fail.

We make a decision to fail. . .when we allow fear to prevent us from stepping out of our comfort zone or from taking a step of faith.

Faith destroys fear. . .crushes doubt. . .conquers the unknown. . .inspires others. . .and makes us victorious in all our hands find to do.

If we want to do more than we’ve done. . .be more than we’ve been. . .then we need to take a risk when it lines up with His Word.

God’s Word tells us what to do. . .if we take a risk and fail to succeed.

Proverbs 24:16 in the New Living Translation says:

For sports fans this is an exciting time of the year.  National Football League teams are headed to the Super Bowl...each hoping to win the Championship trophy.

College basketball is in full swing. . .each team with their eye on becoming national champions.

Major league baseball is gearing up for the start of spring training next month with each team dreaming of becoming World Series champions.

Yes, when we think of champions. . .we think of those who win sports titles. . .either as a team or through individual efforts.

It is not easy to become a champion. . .it takes determination. . .practice. . .exercise. . .discipline and, yes. . .commitment to never give up, give in, back up, back down, sit down, quit or walk away until victory is achieved.

Who’s in your inner circle?  Do you have really close friends?

Write down the characteristics which make you consider each a close friend.

How do you decide with whom you will spend time?

Are your social interactions uplifting and character building for everyone involved?
