Over the holiday break, I read Mike Smith and Jon Gordon’s You Win in the Locker Room First: The 7 C’s to Build a Winning Team in Business, Sports, and Life.
In the book, Jon Gordon notes that he has shared with many people the simple discipline of developing just One Word as a way to focus your energy for the upcoming year, noting that 90% of New Year’s Resolutions are usually dropped by March. Gordon explains that many companies have taken the idea a step further, asking each team member to choose a word for the year and commit to living that word.
How about you? What is Your One Word for 2018?
As Gordon explains, “When you discover your One Word for the year, it gives you more clarity, passion and purpose for life. The One Word exercise brings simplicity and focus. It cuts through the distractions and keeps us focused on what really matters.”

In this seventh month of the year, we continue to explore the Seventh Commandment, “You shall not commit adultery.” This commandment is about the purity of marriage and the commitment made during marital vows, “to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.”
As I contemplated marital commitment, I turned to Pastor Tony Evans, who is founder and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas. He formerly served as chaplain for the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and currently serves as chaplain for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks. His Christian radio broadcast, The Alternative, is broadcast on nearly 1,000 Christian radio outlets across the nation daily.
In 2010, Dr. Evans wrote a short book entitled For Married Men Only: Three Principles for Loving Your Wife. Now, we’ll explore those three principles and practical applications for each of them.
