I’m not going to continue knocking [on] that old door that doesn’t open for me. I’m going to create my own door and walk through that. (Ava DuVernay, American filmmaker)
Waiting for the “golden opportunity” to knock is most often an unrewarded waiting game. Not only are there many opportunities around us that we miss, DuVernay suggests that sometimes we have to create or discover our own. Where to look? What open doors might there be in your workplace, your church, your service club or neighborhood? What stirs you to action?
For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened (Matthew 7:8).
