Ecclesiastes 7:8 NASB "The end of a matter is better than its beginning; Patience of spirit is better than arrogance of spirit."Nothing like standing back and seeing what was accomplished! Today's Word is about the end rather than the beginning and how patience is the key! If we enjoy the journey of the project we are doing, the end result will bring us more satisfaction than if we rush through it just to get it done! I was hired to clean out an old barn where years of "stuff" had been placed. I could have just rented a dumpster and begin to fill it up but I took my time and went through things and donated the many items that could be used again. When it was all over, I stood at the door to the barn and found satisfaction that many others were blessed by my patience to do the job. Let's not be so quick to rush through what the Lord has called us to do but patiently get it done! peace, tom
