If we live for the hope of seeing significant days in life, we’ll toss in the towel. The gaps are simply too long. We need a different goal: faithfulness rather than significance. Pascal wrote, “The strength of a man’s virtue must not be measured by his efforts, but by his ordinary life.” If the Lord chooses to make a day significant, that’s great. But that’s his business. Significant days are God’s to ordain. Most of life is lived in the gaps between great moments.
