Seven minutes a day

I read the following guide to a "seven minute in the morning devotional time" in a Stand Firm magazine:
  • A half minute of prayer for guidance;
  • Four minutes reading the Bible; and
  • Two-and-a-half minutes to pray through the acronym ACTS: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication.

No doubt, investing seven minutes a day in these activities shapes the way I approach each day.

I recently added a morning stretching routine (that takes about seven minutes) which help me wake up and provide some physical benefit as well.

Seven minutes a day. I'd guess there are a lot of seven minute blocks of time that, for most of us, pass by in the most ordinary of ways. I wonder what extraordinary results might occur if we selected a few blocks of time and invested them intentionally.
