Every time the Olympics come around, Iâ€™m always amazed at the small difference in time between the winner of the gold and the other competitors. Itâ€™s called the slight edge. In some races it will be a difference of just one or two-tenths of a second. Yet, we remember the winners and tend to forget the â€œalso-rans.â€
In the game of life, so often the difference between being an also-ran and the winner is that slight edge. The difference between being average and great is just a little bit of difference, just a little extra effort.
Because life is a challenge for us all, I urge you to think about a personal relationship with God to find that slight edge for living. Faith in God provides strength and character to give us just the little bit of extra required to have a successful life. What a difference in the end between being average and being great.
