Doing Nothing

If you stop and do nothing until you can do everything, you will remain useless. (Charles Spurgeon, 19th century English preacher)

It’s a mistaken idea to that that you shouldn’t venture to help if you can’t completely solve the problem or resolve the issue at hand. What foolishness! “Every little bit helps,” they say, and that is certainly worth remembering. To wait until you can do it all, as Spurgeon observes, is likely to mean that nothing good happens and you’ve failed to have a part in something worth trying.

The Apostle Paul: “For you . . . ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you (1 Thessalonians 3:7).
