Back to Basics

If there is one thing I have learned over the years it is this. Never abandon the basics. What do I mean? The basics of life are the very foundational principles that give you momentum, drive and encouragement. It is what keeps you grounded when you are successful and it is what gets your through the tough times. NEWS FLASH! Sometimes success is your tough time! So I want to spend some time this week reviewing the basics. The basics of life, the basics of church, the basics of a number of things. Before you say, "I don't need this." Let me ask you something. Can you sit down right now and write out the basics of your life, your hopes, your dreams? Can you remember what makes your marriage and/or family successful? Can you remember what it takes to be a strong Christian? If you can't think you might want to keep checking in this week, a little tune up will not hurt and you might discover something that will help you reach a new level in your life through Jesus.
