The Bible Keeps Your Feet Firm

Bible First, Breakfast Second


Wheaties might be the breakfast of champions, but Bible reading and prayer are the best way for a follower of Jesus to start the day. Doug McMillon, the President and CEO of Walmart, shares how he starts his day on the right foot. He tries to start every day with quiet and prayerful reflection. In this video from the WorkMatters FUSE Forum, Doug outlines the importance of a faith foundation at work.



For Doug, the most important part of his day starts with Bible reading and prayerful reflection. Recalibrating around that moment of focus throughout the day helps keep him centered on the right values and perspective. But it doesn't happen passively.

No matter how much we enjoy our work, each day brings with it new challenges and new stressors. Starting the day right—focused on God's Word and His direction for our day—can help to mitigate the stress. Not only that, we can honor and glorify Him with our actions and words. Today, keep your feet planted on God's Word.
