Pursuing Goals

It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little. (Sydney Smith, English preacher)

Many tasks and aspirations seem so large that we just don’t want to pursue them because we aren’t big enough or we think we don’t have the resources, the time, or the strength for them. Such an attitude most likely means that the desired project won’t even get started, much less completed. Smith’s words are convicting. Even if it’s only a little, do it; see what can happen.

Seeing a poor widow give two small coins, Jesus said, “… this poor widow has given more than all the others . . . For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she … has given everything she had to live on.” (Mark 12:42-44)
