One hamburger won’t kill you… but a thousand might.

One cigarette won’t kill you… but a thousand might.

One day of physical inactivity won’t kill you… but a thousand might.

These principles apply to other areas of our lives as well.

One argument with your spouse won’t end your marriage… but a thousand might.

One angry tirade at your kids won’t end your relationship with them… but a thousand might.

One slack day in the office won’t damage your career… but a thousand might.

One toxic thought won’t kill your plans for success… but a thousand might.

The challenge is to understand how easily one activity can turn into two.

And two into ten.

And then you’ve got a habit that’s hard to break.

And then you’ve done something a thousand times and you’re suddenly vulnerable.

I want to encourage you today to have a serious, uncompromising look at your life.

Don’t excuse the potentially dangerous things by saying that one more won’t kill you.  Maybe you’ve done something 999 times before, leaving you exposed to death by a thousand cuts.
