STOP AND THINK – If you are not ready today, you will be less ready tomorrow. (Publius Ovidius Naso [Ovid], 1st century B.C. Roman poet)

We often put off doing today what we think we’re not quite ready for. That’s a wise decision if you haven’t made proper preparations that will mean success is less likely. But, too often, it’s not the lack of preparation so much as the fear of inability or of failure that keeps us from moving on. Take courage, prepare, and work hard.

Anyone . . . must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need (Ephesians 4:28).
