Learn by doing....


The Marshall paraphrase of Ecclesiastes 11:4 goes - "If you sit and wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done."

I know this verse only too well. I have been guilty of it many times. God expects us to do what we can with what we have. Having the best of intentions but never doing is worse than doing something less-than-perfect. We should strive for excellence - however, we will never try, we will never achieve. Doing things less than perfect is how we learn.

Truth is, almost everything we do, we do less than perfect the first time (and maybe the second, etc.). But that is how we learn and achieve. Don't make excellence an idol. Seek to do the best you can - and then work on improving it. Go out today and do what you have been holding back from doing because you were waiting for the perfect timing.
