STOP AND THINK – If you are going to eat an elephant, the best way to do it is one bite at a time. (Ken Duncan, Australian professional photographer)

We’ve heard this idea before, and we think of it as a joke, especially when Duncan continues with a pun, “If you sit back and look at how big the elephant is, you’ll never finish the “tusk.” Of course, the lesson to be learned is that big impossible-looking jobs can be successfully completed if we break them down into smaller, workable tasks.

Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun (Ecclesiastes 8:15).
