Reflection is a wonderful aid to living, as it gives you the chance to view your actions over a period of time. In other reflections it gives you some peace of mind, looking over what you may consider a better era in your life.
I recall a statement I heard the late Dr. Norman Vincent Peale make at a seminar in Indianapolis years ago. Dr. Peale said, “To find out how far you will go in your career ask yourself this question; ‘Do you get things done, OR, do you do a lot of things?” He went on to assert that the many who are doing many things become like Mary’s sister, Martha, and will miss the best things in life.” A little while ago I realized that I was becoming too much like Martha.
The man who is becoming known as “Harry sure wears a lot of hats” is setting himself up for creating far less than he could if he would take the patience to enlist the aid of others and thus become “really getting it done Harry.”
Paul wrote, “This one thing I do.” A follower of the context will discover that all of the efforts Paul put forth were directed toward one goal and he enlisted the aid of auxiliary faithful others whenever possible.
Getting it done?
2 Timothy 2:2…the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
