SUCCESS IS NOT THE ISSUE; DESIRE IS! DO WE HAVE REAL LOVE?
We may try to help somebody and think we have failed, but the seeds we have planted will bear fruit in time. We never know the results that even one kind word might have. But the main thing is to have love for others, a real desire to help them, whether we succeed or not. “And now abide faith, hope and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love” (1 Cor. 13:13).
PRAYER FOR TODAY
To accomplish much, be much. It is a foolish thing to assume we can accomplish any good thing without preparing ourselves by being honest, pure, unselfish, and loving. We must choose the good and keep choosing it, before we are ready to be used by God to accomplish anything worthwhile. We will never be given opportunities until we are ready for them.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
You must be before you can do!
