GREENVILLE, S.C., April 22, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- South Carolina's Christian radio talk show host, Sam Hunter, reminds us to focus on the little things each day that create a life of greatness in his new golf-themed devotional book, "The Putting Green Devotional: Improving Your Life's Short Game."
Former PGA Champion, John Daly, explained, "Any time you win a tournament, you win with your short game." That's why the world's best players spend most of their time perfecting their shortest shots. In golf, the 3-foot putt counts just as much as the 300-yard drive.
Like many of us, you may have a tendency to focus primarily on long-range and long-term things like attaining your career goals, getting a new venture started, or reaching your retirement goals. Yes, those things are important. Yet, it's the little things that matter the most:
- A meaningful conversation with your friend.
- A date with your spouse.
- 15 minutes reading the Bible.
- Taking a walk outside to have a conversation with God.
Most of us want to do something great with our lives over the long term. Yet, true significance in life happens in "the short game," the little things that create a life of greatness.
Patterned after a standard golf tournament, "The Putting Green Devotional" is divided into four "rounds" of 18 "holes," which are daily inspirational readings that serve to help you in "the short game" of your life. Each of the 72 "holes" focuses on helping you in a particular area of your relationship with God and others: 1) Priorities, 2) Grace, 3) Humility, and 4) Integrity.
Dr. Gary Habermas, distinguished research professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy at Liberty University and Theological Seminary, commended "The Putting Green Devotional" as "two-minute sermons that are hard-hitting reminders to keep on being totally committed to the Lord, patching up items in our lives that need work." Habermas continued, "I'd recommend Sam's book for believers who want similarly to be pressed to keep moving forward for the Lord."
