Revelation 7:16 ->It does get better

Motivational quote: "He is a wise man who wastes no energy on pursuits for which he is not fitted, and he is still wiser who, from among the things that he can do well, chooses and resolutely follows the best." William E. Gladstone
Thought #1: The key is to find what you are fitted for, and that requires self knowledge and good counsel.
Thought #2: You have to balance this against doing what is needed. If you're the only one around, you can't claim "I'm not fitted to call the Fire Department, your house will just have to burn!"
Thought #3: Churches, be wiser!! We are not fit for many of the things we do.
Prayer: Lord God, today let us fix our eyes on Christ Jesus, and let us cast aside our energy wasters to do what You command!
