Abraham Lincoln once said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.”
I hate physical limitations. I like less being told I can’t do something. Young twerps getting air time just by sitting on their afts whining really grind my gears. Older ones, even more.
You’ve heard it: “NOBODY SAID IT WOULD BE EASY. THEY SAID IT WOULD BE WORTH IT.” Whoever first said that is the type around whom I wish to hang.
Solomon (as far as we know), in Ecclesiastes 9:10: “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” Paul read that self-help book a lot. “Work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you’re really serving God” (Ephesians 6:7).
No guilt trip intended unless you’re dogging it. Only you know. If you’re a believer, you know better. Get to doing your best; somebody’s always watching you. You’re not there to please critics. When day’s done, they’ll still be sitting around discussing how everyone else could’ve done better.
Ignore ’em. Consistently be doing and giving your best, no matter the task.
Your mission for today, should you choose to accept it, is to be pleasing God.
IF IT WAS EASY, ANYBODY COULD DO IT.
