Do Your Best

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly. (G. K. Chesterton, 19th-20th century English writer).

Students are often challenged to do their best, to always strive for excellence, so, Chesterton’s statement seems so contradictory. Of course, we should always want to do our best, but even if we work hard and don’t achieve perfection, the effort is often well worth it. Something done less than perfectly may still be of value and help, so keep working hard to do your best.

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce (Proverbs 3:9).
