Today's Photograph . . . . Sadly, That Probably Applies To Christians As Well  (USWS)
Bible Study Verse
Luke 9:23
Then He said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me." (HCSB)
I conduct seminars at fishing shows, tackle stores and Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) meetings throughout Texas. 
One of my most prevalent speeches is what I term, "Little Things Make a Big Difference." In the seminar, I speak about the importance of keeping a log of your fishing trips, knowing when the tide is falling and rising, knowing when the moon is rising, falling and setting, taking care of your tackle before you hit the dock. Often, it is these little things that determine harvest success; and, to me, they are so simple to know and prepare before you go fishing. 
(Bink G)

Action Point
As Christians, the little things determine how close our relationship with Jesus is. Praying and reading your Bible daily, serving others before self, tithing regularly and being prepared to share the Lord when given the opportunity are spiritual disciplines we have heard all of our lives. But, how many of us take these simple practices and apply them daily? 
Ever heard the saying, "Ten percent of the fishermen catch 90 percent of the fish?" Sadly, that probably applies to Christians as well.

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Keep of log book of all your hunting or fishing excursions. Make a note of the tides, moon, winds and what part of the day you caught fish or saw game. It could help you next year, and the next and the next.
