Can comes after will. Ability comes after availability. (Gabriella Farro, overseas social worker)

These comments were made recently at a global leadership summit. The two brief sentences help us understand the order of successful activity. Until you have the desire (will) to accomplish something, you won’t be able (can) to do it. Likewise, you have to make yourself available to pursue worthy ends before you will be able to exercise the skill to reach your goals.

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. (Colossians 3:23)
