STOP AND THINK – Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal. (Hannah More, 18th-19th century English writer and philanthropist)
Having a goal is a good thing, but it’s often hard to keep it foremost in your planning and thinking. There are so many things that can get in the way of reaching your goal, and many of those “obstacles” might even be good things in themselves. We must steer around the obstacles and be careful not to be a barrier to someone else as they work toward their goal.
Make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister (Romans 14:13).
