You can’t leave a footprint that lasts if you’re always walking on tiptoe. (Marion Blakey, business executive)
We sometimes say that someone is “tip-toeing around,” implying that maybe they are avoiding reality or a possible unfavorable reaction to their activity. That sort of behavior, according to Blakey, won’t accomplish anything of lasting value. To leave a lasting footprint you have to be intentional and act with assurance and courage.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised (Hebrews 10:36).
