“It is better to finish something than to start it. It is better to be patient than to be proud.” Ecclesiastes 7:8
Often in life we make commitments to do certain things. We make agreements, we sign contracts, we do new years resolutions and make promises to people. In doing the things we’ve agreed to do, it can be easier to start than finish. Isn’t this true??
The Bible is saying that it can be like that too in our lives as Christians. We can start out doing something for God, start out serving in Church, start a Bible reading plan, commit to fasting regularly, but we times get tough, we can easily get distracted or discouraged and then quit.
But, to be people sold-out for Jesus, we need to not just start something but to it finish too. Be sure to ‘finish’ all the things God is calling you to, and not just ‘finish’, but ‘finish well’.
Cube Challenge: Ask God to help you ‘finish well’ in all the commitments you’ve made to Him, church and others. We give glory to God when we stick at things and finish our tasks well.
