The following quotation was sent to me recently. I did not know who Hamilton Wright Mabie was but I liked his sentiment.
The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success. Hamilton Wright Mabie
Jesus: “You give them something to eat.”
Disciples (whining): “Are you out of your mind? Where are we going to get that kind of money?
Jesus: “Why don’t you see what you have first.”
Disciples (exasperated): “Where’s what we’ve got.”
Jesus: “Fine, that’s enough.”
Too, often we leave Christ out of our day and out of the equation.
What impossible things are you equipped to do today? When was the last time you invited Christ into your challenges? You’ve got what it takes!
