Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. (Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century American essayist, lecturer, and poet)

Sometimes we become so absorbed in the routines of life that we can fall into the habit of doing what we do almost without thinking. The “everydayness” of life may become boring, and we move along mindlessly. Emerson suggests that living that way will accomplish very little of value. So, find some way to bring the joy of expectation back into your life today.

Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it (2 Corinthians 8:11).
